Sea? Gull!
Most beloved Hamburg animal - our sea gulls.


Watercolor, fine liner, some Photoshop all bring the well-dressed sea gull to life. Due to production, seamless designs are always difficult - the white background might be a good alternative.

Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?

Sea gulls are everywhere in Hamburg, and remind us that we are close to the sea.

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

Northern Europe

What story does your design tell?

Tis cute. And I have added one story version, with the sea gull catching the fish.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

Watercolor, slight scribble look, not quite cartoon but cute... the kind of look you would find in a children's book or locally made ceramics - just because that is how I like to work.

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.

Hamburg, Germany.

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)

Nope, all original.

To be featured on facebook as the Victorinox "Pick of the Day" please write a short statement about you (see more details in the brief).

I am an illustrator and designer from Hamburg, Germany. Crazy about my dog, the sea, children's books, and getting paint all over myself.
