"Hi! I am Harry, 33 of age, living in London. I am half developer half designer and I really enjoyed transforming the "Hare & Tortoise" fable into a design for Victorinox. What I like the most of my design is its minimalism and the story it tells. The victory of the meek turtle over the arrogant rabbit.
