The main point of inspiration comes from the color: Rio de Janeiro is a city that breaths life and beauty from every single part, so I decided to go hard for a strong and vivid color selection, and using them for the construction of the next inspiration, the nature. The shapes of the 'Costelas de Adão' (Monstera deliciosa) as seen in the Rio's Botanical Garden are coming together and playing around the third and focus point of inspiration, the 'Christ the Redeemer', on the top of Corcovado (one of the new Seven Wonders of the World), in minimal line style. I did my best to represent the things that made me fall in love with Rio the most, and hope you guys enjoy it!

Describe why you have chosen this place as a visual? What story does your design tell?
At a long flight, overnight, the first thing I saw during the descent was the incredible geography of the city, those mountains from above were traumatizing! (I knew that I had to translate that shocking horizon and shapes into my design). There was me, anxious at the airport, after waiting very much to finally meet this misterious place called 'Wonderful City', and the rest is history: its my favorite city in the world!
