Galápagos, Land of Evolution
The Galápagos, a place where science meets paradise thanks to Charles Darwin´s theory of evolution.


I wanted to recreate the Galápagos Islands since it is one of the most iconic places in the world, not only because the beautiful landscapes, flora and fauna one can found there but also for all the scientific background with Charles Darwin´s theory of Evolution. The Galápagos is one of many Ecuadorian wonders and, as a natural reserve, it has many thousands of species, from sharks, iguanas and blue-footed boobies, to some of the oldest creatures of the planet: the Galapagos tortoises - whose average lifetime reaches more than 100 years old! Galapagos is beautiful, colorful, adventurous, mysterious and magnificent in many ways, it is the heart of the science of evolution and the habitat of marvelous creatures; it is, definitely, paradise on Earth.

The Galápagos Islands / Ecuador

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

The story I want to tell in my design is about the many flora and fauna Galápagos owns, and it is, of course, impossible to represent all that in just 50mm of space, but I've selected some of the most iconic animals such as the Galápagos tortoise, the iguana, and the blue-footed boobies to show how wonderful this place is.
