Two sides of the magical lake of Janitzio: The morning of fishing and the night of the dead.


I have represented on each side two of the most important activities that taking place on Janitzio island in Michoacan, Mexico. On the one hand, the traditional fishing in the Mexican boats called "chinampas". And on the other hand, the night that comes to cover Janitzio every November 1st with the feast "day of the dead".

Which place, city and country is featured in your design? (place/city/country)

Janitzio, Michoacan, Mexico

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

I selected this place to represent, because I am from Michoacan, and Janitzio is a truly magical place that tells a different story in the day and night.

To be featured on social media as the Victorinox "Pick of the Day", please write a short statement about yourself (see more details in the brief).

Hello! My name is Alejandro and I am 24 years old. I am currently in Guadalajara, Mexico. I have created this design for Victorinox because I think Janitzio reflects the daily work of Mexicans as it is the fish and traditions most representative of our country as it is the day of the dead.
