Bananas & fun is all you need
Monkeys rule the world with their craziness, wildness and trouble-free attitude.


If you want to live a happy life, you have to think positively. And which animal is more positive than the monkey? None. Because the motto of the jungle is: “Bananas and fun is all you need.”

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

I chose monkey mandrill because of their amazing and beautiful appearance. Just look at their crazy colours and rich fur! Even the parrots are jealous of their colours and perfect style. In the jungle you can hear mandrills scream: “We are the fashion divas.”

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

Jungles of Africa.

What story does your design tell?

Mandrill from my knife is showing us how to enjoy life, that you should live easy, you should know how to relax and always be proud of your uniqueness. Show your true colours.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

My style resembles modelling clay because it looks very playful and shows true character of monkeys. It is a vector illustation.

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.
