The beaver is seen as extremely diligent, mainly because of the way it constructs its own habitat. Because of this aspect, it was created the idiom “busy as a beaver”, which refers to the condition of being very industrious, hard working.
Your Swiss Army Knife 2017
Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?
A beaver. Looking at the way that the beaver works, it’s understandable that people are using the analogy to describe a hard working person.
What culture or region does the animal stand for?
Not only one in particular.
What story does your design tell?
I chose to illustrate the beaver in a funny way, devouring a tree until only the leaves remain , but I also tried to emphasize the idea of his diligence.
What style did you choose for your design and why?
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.
