The bird pictured is an Amazonian Royal Flycatcher present in the Amazon region, one of the most beautiful ecosystems in the world.
Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?
I chose this bird by the beauty and the colors. It is a good representative of the Latin American culture, the Carnival and the exuberance of tropical forests.
What culture or region does the animal stand for?
The Amazonian royal flycatcher is found in forest and woodland throughout most of the Amazon basin in northern Bolivia, eastern Peru, eastern Ecuador, eastern Colombia, Venezuela, the Guianas, and northern and western Brazil - Wikipedia
What story does your design tell?
My proposal does not tell a story, only explores the theme proposed by Victorinox and shows the beauty of a typical tropical bird in Latin America.
What style did you choose for your design and why?
I used manual drawing and digital painting. Art has a mix of color matching very well. It is a striking and neutral art that can please the consumers of the company, be they men, women, children and adults.
Please make sure you have filled out your country of origin in your profile! It’s important that the regional Victorinox team understands the cultural background of your design.
Have you used any third-party material? Even if you’ve modified or combined it, please know that in this project no stock material is accepted. See “Guidelines, regulations & comments” (in the brief)
I did not use third-party material. I used own design manual.

Hi! I am Walter Spina, I am 29, and I live in Sao Paolo, Brazil. I work here as a designer since 2008. I created this design for Victorinox cause I think freedom and the most important thing in a person's life, freedom of choice, to transit between places and to seek change and to express this concito worked with birds. These animals are beautiful and are present in most of the world. Migrate and seek heat or cold, fly around the globe without the need for bureaucracies. They are free.
