South American Birds
Some pretty birds from South America.


The idea of this project is to show some very interesting and pretty birds from the part of the world where I live which is South America, more specifically Brazil. Through this project I also would like to show some species that are not very known as the Catarina Azul and Coruja-das-Torres.

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

For this project I have chosen the Periquito Catarina Azul (an specific parakeet), Beija-flor (hummingbird), Coruja-das-Torres (an specific owl) and the Arara (macaw). I have chosen them not only because they are all very typical at this part of the world but also because they are too different from one another, which causes varied impressions on people.

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

Not all of the birds were originally from South America but, because they got along so well in the tropical climate, they all ended up as part of our beautiful and colourful fauna, which I'm very proud of.

What story does your design tell?

I've spent the last year living abroad and thinking of these birds, somehow, reminds me of my homeland. Something good about it.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

Because I'm very fond of children's book illustrations and, at the same time, I wanted to be true to the original vibrant colours of these birds I thought digital painting could be a good idea.

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.

Brazil, South America, Earth.
