I wanted to use the traditional swiss army knife colours in a folk art style.
Your Swiss Army Knife 2017
Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?
I chose the fox as it is a big part of Great British wildlife seen in both cities and countryside. The fox lends himself well to the original swiss army knife red colour that I used.
What culture or region does the animal stand for?
The fox is a typical British animal.
What story does your design tell?
Foxy is clever, he is a survivor.
What style did you choose for your design and why?
I chose a folk art style as I found it it work well with the animal and my choice of single colour.

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 Fiona, a British designer. I have worked as a Graphic designer within the licensed toy industry for 7 years. I created this design for Victorinox cause I love folk art and think the fox lends himself well to this style. I wanted to use a single colour. I chose the original Swiss army knife colour so that I could use the single colour incorporating the logo into the design.
