Your project impressed jury. Where did its idea come from?
The topic Paris in Bratislava was perfect! It was not easy as I thought at the beginning. I immediately started to think about it. I had many ideas, but I was not pretty sure, which one to pick up to keep the jury on my side. I followed my heart and simply put my first idea on the paper.
Many positive and negative things are happenning in the world at the moment. The nationalities can collaborate together and create something nice and spectacular. Good vibes from both sides (Bratislava – Paris) have glued together. I thought to give it a final touch by using 3 colours of the French and the Slovak flag could have been a good idea. Logo and the final product of my project was born and it seemed to be right step.
