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

I have always been fascinated with Easter Island, also known as Rapa Nui. It's an island that is famous for it's 887 stone monuments known as Moai. I chose this place for several reasons. Easter Island above all other places just makes me want to explore. The island instils a sense of wonder in me. The stone heads are instantly recognisable yet there is so much about them that is not known. Above all though it is the combination of simplicity and master craftsmanship that really appeals.

Hi, I'm Dave, I'm a Designer & Illustrator from Bristol, UK. I created this design for Victorinox because Easter Island is a fascinating place both for the stone monuments and for its sheer isolation.
