Cuba (they live mainly in the easternmost part of Cuba)

What story does your design tell?

My design is purely aesthetic but it allows people to know this animal which is threatened by rampant poaching and environmental deterioration.

Inspired from the typical Cuban posters, my design has a flat, symbolic, strong and colorful style which is functional and perfectly adapted to the small measurements of the "small Swiss Army Knife".

Hi! I am Annick, I am a French-Cuban designer and I live in Switzerland since 2010. I work as a designer and illustrator since 2007. I created this design for Victorinox because I like their products and the firm has a branch office in my city. I think this design fits the soul of the brand, because of its dynamic style, its strong visual impact and its iconic power.
