Creativity has no limits, as these new Swatch X You designs proudly show:

TOPOGRAPHIC by Antony Demierre (born 1995 in Geneva⁄Switzerland, Bachelor Media and Interaction Design student): an organic take on mechanical watches and their multi-layered clockwork mechanism, creating a topographic digital imagery while playing on depth levels through the use of shape and color.

HORAE by Caroline Perrenoud (born 1999 in Le Locle⁄Switzerland, Bachelor Photography student) and Sofia Papaefthymiou (born 1996 in Paralimni⁄Cyprus, Bachelor Photography student): an artwork that reflects the beauty of an abundant, lush flora. Biotope variety ranges from the exotic to the wild and the rural, providing a wealth of shapes and colors to play with and honor the vibrant energy of nature.

FÊTE DU SLIP by Laetitia Khiara (born 1998 in Lausanne⁄Switzerland, Bachelor Fine Arts student): cheeky sketches of hand drawn female and male private parts full of humor and lightness.

STRANDS by Sébastien Galera Larios (born 1996 in Payerne⁄Switzerland, Bachelor Media and Interaction Design student): a masterpiece painting reinterpreted with a digital 3D extrusion process, creating timeless imagery out of centuries-old pigments.

68LINES by Jorge Reis (born 1996 in Lamego⁄Portugal, Bachelor Media and Interaction Design student): a project inspired by dazzle painting and kinetic art, generating optical effects with graphic layers.
