Pink dolphins swimming in the river


The Tonina is a pink dolphin who lives in the venezuelan rivers

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

Inia geoffrensis humboldtiana, is a Pink dolphin from the Orinoco river. Here in Venezuela we call it "Toninas"

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

The Amazon / Venezuela

What story does your design tell?

My design is a tribute to a beautiful animal who sadly is now endangered. I wanted to show the pink dolphin in a happy dance through the river.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

Flat and vectored because it seems to be a great way to transmit a message in such a tiny space.
