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

We often forget how much a city can offer. I've been living in Jo’burg for the last 9 years and there is so much to do. The city is being transformed into a place welcoming to those who are different, with art, music and craft beer, experiencing the rich diversity our nation can offer. I portrayed the city in with color and creativity.

Hi, my name is Douglas Desmond and I live in Johannesburg, South Africa. I’ve been working as a freelance Product Designer for 4 years, and also try my hand in a bit of Graphic design. I created this design for Victorinox because I think South Africa has a lot of creativity to offer the world, I encapsulated this in the beauty of the Soweto Towers, in Johannesburg. Amongst the city, there is colour and creativity, we are more than our wild animals and Table Mountain.
