It was the first competition I entered related to graphic design. I had put all my hard work in this design and all the skills I’ve learnt since I laid my hands on Photoshop one and a half years ago. I’d like to thank NASO for making me believe that passion is everything and I’m really delighted to get such opportunity.”
