St. Isaac’s Cathedral / Saint Petersburg/ Russia

Describe why you have chosen this place as a visual? What story does your design tell?

As a child I strolled the streets of Leningrad (now St.Petersburg) and observed how diverse my beautiful city was. Inspired by the legends and Peter The Great historical heritage, everyone in my hometown knows these stories. One of the legends tells about sky guardians, powerful patrons, who protect the city and preserve its treasures. St. Isaac’s Cathedral is a symbol of such a legend and I gave it a birds-eye-view to emphasize this idea.

Hi! My name is Anna and I’m a Berlin-based artist and designer originally from St.Petersburg, Russia. I’m inspired enormously by the museums, legends and historical heritage — from Peter the Great to Vostok 1. I’m combining digital art with classical painting to produce different means of visual expression. I created these designs for Victorinox because I believe that sharing your ideas on professional level is very fulfilling and rewarding experience. Hope you like it! Video uploaded on fb:)
