At the end of 2009, Riverkeeper launched its first-ever logo design contest in order to cast a wider net for a fresh, new perspective to symbolically represent the essence of who we are as an organization.

We received nearly 500 entries, which were boiled down to a final few in a very close competition. The winning design was by Sabine Reichert, a Hastings-on-the-Hudson resident, whose image instantly captured the key elements of what we stand for in one succinct symbol.

Sabine received her Masters in Illustration and Communication Design from the HAW College in Hamburg, Germany. She has worked as a Graphic Designer for 15 years in New York freelancing for clients in the health and beauty packaging and software and engineering sectors. Some of her more prominent clients have included Unilever, Colgate and Del Laboratories.

“I enjoyed the challenge of the contest and the opportunity to design a logo for an organization that is so relevant to me,” said Sabine. “Because of my German origin, I have a tendency to be an environmentalist. European countries are so small that garbage and environmental issues can hardly be hidden from the public. I am aware of how important the work of Riverkeeper is and am honored to have my design chosen to represent this organization.”
