Upcoming Project: Your Swiss Army Knife 2013


Hey jovotans,

Good news for the new year! After the huge success of 2012’s Victorinox project, we’re starting 2013 with a second round of design with Your Swiss Army Knife 2013.

Being one of the most successful projects thus far on jovoto, Swiss Army Knife Fashion Edition had nearly 1,000 submissions, 12 ideas licensed, 10 of which were produced and topped it all off by becoming Victorinox’s best selling Limited Edition of the small Swiss pocket knives- so we are so excited to bring this project back to our community!

The Task

January 2 – Feb. 6 2013 develop and submit your new, fresh and bold ideas for the casing of the 58mm Limited Edition Victorinox pocket knife. Your designs should be with the latest trends and up to date with the latest graphic developments. Show Victorinox your newest and most fashionable design ideas but make sure you don’t submit designs from last year, designs already submitted in the previous contest not be considered at this time.


There is a total of €22,500, which includes the licencing of 10 ideas and 15 community winners.  And I shouldn’t forget to mention the special prizes!

Special prizes

In order to underline the aims, two special prizes will be awarded:

  1. € 2,000 for the bestselling new Limited Edition.
  2. Double idea prize for a design that makes it into the permanent Victorinox collection.

How’s that for a “good slide” (as you would say in German, “Guten Rutsch”) into the new year!

It was so fun to go through the project and see pages of great designs, so we are looking forward to the same fervor and style you brought to the last project, and more!
