most representative animal of Mexico, Axolotl


Mexico's most representative animal, does not live in the wild in any other country in the world. The Axolotl represents Mexico in all the cultural, food and legends, that's why I decide in my first proposal, to capture the axolotl.

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

Por que el axolotl tiene una forma física única y fácil de reconocer.

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

En Xochimilco, centro de México

What story does your design tell?

Captured the Ajolote in their natural environment, even endangered, still lives in the lakes of Xochimilco, a quiet animal, and almost always immobile

What style did you choose for your design and why?

Vector style, with patterns in the body Axolotl referring to Mexican culture, done digitally.

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.
