“My big hobby is to create drawings, cards and logo designs on my computer. I love the Swiss Army Knife and the Victorinox design contest was a fun way to live my hobby. My design tells the story about the diligent bee – after her flight through flower fields, meadows and woods she conscientiously places the nectar into the honeycomb. These precious animals are however greatly endangered. That’s why I wanted to dedicate my design to the bees.”
Randula, Sri Lanka/Australia
“I started working as a graphic designer in Sri Lanka and moved to Sydney in 2015. For the Victorinox Design Contest I have chosen to portray turtles because they fight hard to get where they are happiest: the sea. It’s a life that I can relate to with my own story.”
Illeana and Illanca, Romania
“Our design for the Victorinox Design Contest illustrates fireflies. The Romanian legend states that they guide lost travelers to safety and shelter. We wanted to transport the mysticism of these rare creatures with the vivid blue tones of a summer night.”
“I love dogs. So for the design contest I pondered how I could portray my favorite pet and I thought – why not dogs in space? I kept the design in greyscale and had the Victorinox logo and leash stand out with its vibrant red color. The other elements just add balance.”
