Background

The Swiss Army Knife is one of Switzerland’s most iconic products. Most people are familiar with the classic red design and the unmistakable Victorinox cross and shield. Ever since 1884, when Karl Elsener opened his own cutlery business in Ibach-Schwyz in Switzerland, the production site has been steadily growing in this village. Even though the original has been copied and adapted around the world, Victorinox is still the global leader in pocket knives.

Victorinox and jovoto’s global creative community are teaming up for the 7th time to create a limited edition collection! Each year designers and illustrators from all over the world submit their designs for a chance of getting produced by Victorinox!

In preparation for this year’s project, Victorinox wants to hear from you! Post a video of yourself/your work on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter saying "Hi, I'm >your name<” in your native language and, in English: “I'm from/ live in >your country< and I’m looking forward to the Places of the World project because….."  Please use the hashtags #MyVictorinox & #VictorinoxPlacesOfTheWorld so we can find your video - we will be looking out for them and compiling our favourite ones in this year’s project introduction video!
