Dilly Dally Birdy
Illustration of birds at a tower


Some birds dilly-dally together through the autumn night. Enjoying their togetherness, they curiously watch their colourful surroundings.

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

I chose birds, because they symbolise freedom. Furthermore, birds can see a lot on a single day! :)

What culture or region does the animal stand for?

Birds have positive or special meaning in a lot of cultures in Europe as well as in Asia. In many asian countries, e.g. China or Japan, the bird is a symbol of luck.

What story does your design tell?

Birds dilly-dally through the night. They curiously watch their colourful surroundings and collect flowers and leaves.

What style did you choose for your design and why?

Colourful illustration of simple shapes and naïve style, because I like to experiment with colours and shapes.
