Vicky the Fish
The anatomy of imaginary fish
1/8

Solution

Vicky the Fish shows us how it looks inside. On the one hand we admire the beauty of exotic fish but when we turn the knife you can look into it and get to know some (imaginary) anatomy

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

I have chosen the fish, which does not really exist in the real world. It is a complete figment of my imagination. First, I created a skeleton and then trudged his skin and scales and then found out how it looks... I gave her colors in shades of turquoise, because they remind me of crystal clear seas.

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

In fact, it is difficult to assign Vicky the Fish to any culture or region. Vicky represents fish in a global scale, although the same can not be found in any waters of the world (or maybe it can..?). Vicky was born in my head, and now has a plan to take over the world;)

What story does your design tell?

What style did you choose for your design and why?

I always choose the same style and follow one way - I draw a hand sketch and then I digitalize it by scanning. I don't keep the outlines and contours perfect and I do it on purpose as only computers create perfect shapes, I enjoy finding human strokes in my drawings. My goal is also to use the entire canvas and fit the visual into the actual shape of Swiss Army Knife's covers.

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.

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 34 years old and I come from Poland. I had known my future as graphic since I was very little, but veterinary studies were always my second option, this is why I've found this year's theme very inspiring! :)
