Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?
I chose the "Illuworm" because I created it.
What culture or region does the animal stand for?
The Illuworm stands for my personal culture. It also stands for the like-minded culture.
What story does your design tell?
It tells of a future when, perhaps, such a new species [or others] will be discovered.
What style did you choose for your design and why?
CGI because that is my specialty.

Hi! I am Alan J. Bullock and I live in Köln-Rodenkirchen, Germany. I have worked as a designer since 1987. I created this design for Victorinox because I think that a minimalist approach to design is aesthetic.
