African Penguin
A lot of penguins


The back side has a waddle of penguins all on top of each other and the front has a penguin on a rock.

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

I chose the African Penguin as I think it's shape complements the knife and I chose this species of penguin as it is found on the beaches nearby my home.

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

The Africa Penguin is only found on the coast of South Africa and Namibia

What story does your design tell?

The Africa Penguin is unusual in that they live in such close proximity to humans, but their numbers are worryingly low.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

Fairly graphic

To be featured on facebook as the Victorinox "Pick of the Day" please write a short statement about you (see more details in the brief).

I am an illustrator from Cape Town and I chose to depict these penguins as they are so funny and cute on land and so graceful in the sea. It is possible to have them on the beach or in the water with you in certain parts of Cape Town.
