VisCom student designs 2015 Eco Bag; buy one now


Eco Bags can be purchased for $2.49.

Austin Community College student Denny Kim won the 2015 Eco Bag Art contest, sponsored by the Office of Sustainability and the Art Department.

Faculty, staff, and students selected Kim’s design during Earth Week in April. It has been printed on reusable bags that will be on sale for the next year. He also received an e-reader.

Contest runner-up Mary Urban received a Timbuk2 messenger bag.

Kim is a University of Texas at Austin graduate who is pursuing a web and interactive design certificate at ACC. He says he opted for a single-color design for cost considerations, but then decided to see how creative he could be.

“In the end, trying to save costs by choosing one color wasn’t about restricting what I could do, but seeing how certain restrictions could help me generate ideas.”

Eco Bags can be purchased for $2.49 each through ACC Marketplace.  ACC departments can purchase bags through General Stores.
