Patagonia, Volcán Lanín
The majestic magic of Patagonia represented by one of its icons: the Lanín volcano.


My idea is a handmade, raw, simple drawing of Lanín volcano, part of the Andes mountain range in Patagonia, Argentina. I thought of a pencil, black and white drawing in order to portrait the picturesque, yet romantic loneliness of Patagonia. Then, once in the computer I added some sepia tones to make that statement stronger. Finally I added the word Patagonia which I hand wrote on paper and then brought it to the computer.

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

Lanín Volcano in Lanín National Park, Junín de los Andes, Argentina.

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

I chose this place because I was brought up there and I think it's the most beautiful and magic place in the world. Growing up there you develop a character that's drawn to loving nature and finding your spirituality there; in the lakes, forests and mountains. So when I set out to make a design for a Victorinox pocket knife I couldn't think of any other place. Plus when you grow up surrounded by nature, going camping all the time, Victorinox pocket knifes become part of your everyday life.

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).

I am designer and musician from Junín de los Andes, Patagonia Argentina. I love that place and it's a big part of my character. So you can tell a lot about me from my designs.
