Standing out in the crowd is a good and a rare thing these days, it should be celebrated! Trends are good, but staying true to yourself is of greater importance and in doing so we enrich the world around us. It brings forth new, fresh, inovative and inspiring ideas which can be translated into any domena of our lives.
Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?
I chose an albino giraffe cos of it's rarity.
What culture or region does the animal stand for?
It stands for Africa, but it translates across the known borders. I chose Africa cos my family lives in Botswana.
What story does your design tell?
Every year Victorinox is choosing new different designs. Designs which should stand out. Hence, my idea was linked to the quote above -'' In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different''. It's the whole point, to offer something new, fresh, unseen. Just like albino giraffe is!
What style did you choose for your design and why?
I went with more of a bohemian style and I used a bit of an unusual palette to add a twist to my story-being different and standing out!
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.

Hi! My name is Antoana and I'm a freelance illustrator from Croatia. My idea of 'The Enchanting Africa' was inspired by my family who lives in Botswana. The albino giraffe is very rare and unique, just like my family is. Diversity is something that should be celebrated and treasured!
