It’s all started when I was a kid, seriously.

After finishing my 10th, I joined computer class. After a few months I realized, a computer is much easier to learn. Troubleshooting computers for my friends and neighbors were my daily routine. I started teaching computer in hometown. In my free time, I started exploring all kinds of softwares just out of curiosity. And, started using Photoshop 7.0 (pirated version off-course). I learned a lot of things about Photoshop and other graphics softwares with the help of internet. I started to make stuff that people liked. I was a newbie in design, but local photo studios started offering design work. And design journey started as a photo editor. …
