Arabian night, gypsy cat.
A gypsy cat, foreseeing the love for his crystal ball.


Basically a kitten, on the balcony of a palace, playing, glimpsing the future and the landscape.

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

A cat. I believe that cats are domestic animals ones. In the story they are portrayed as superstitious and mystical powers.

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

Are animals present in several countries.

What story does your design tell?

The design tells the story of a kitten dressed in gypsy glimpsing the future on the balcony of a palace with a breathtaking view. Is this cat a gypsy? Or she just plays with her ball, as cats usually do? That is the question.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

It's a nice design, playful and captivating. It has enough color and has the potential to please collectors of the brand and potential presented by the knife. I chose digital painting with vector aspect to represent my idea, thinking it might facilitate the application in parts if the proposal is selected.

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.
