In the Search of Warmth
Gecko looking for the Sun to bathe in.
1/8

Solution

Swiss Army knives come from a cooler climate, than the region geckos come from. With just a gecko and a blank background (that may just represent snow - left to interpret), I try to portray it's search for warmth.

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

Gecko; i've always been a big fan of lizards and reptiles, despite the fact that in Poland there is a little amount of these creatures. My love towards these animals is still big and strong!

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

South of Europe; warm climate for geckos to bathe in the sun - especially Greece and Spain.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

Cell shading through the use of simple shapes. I like to contrast the relationship between simple shapes and interesting ideas.
