Curious Monkey
The shy howler monkey


The idea is to show the beauty of the howler monkey, trying to express the most important characteristics that it has, showing shyness, innocence and tenderness.

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

I chose the howler monkey. The main reason I chose the Mexican howler monkey is to raise awareness about this beautiful species of animals, because they have much in common with us and our ancestors. It´s one of the most interesting animal species, so I try to show the world the kind of extraordinary animals that exist in my country

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

Central America and northwestern South America.

What story does your design tell?

There is a howler monkey in the front coming up, and on the back you can see his favorite fruits that are bananas.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

Vector illustration in a cartoon style.

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.
