Multimedia design student Muhammad Syamir Rizal Hishamuddin, 23, has been in high spirits, and he has every reason to be. Last month, his digital artworks – jointly created with four coursemates – were handpicked as the designs for his college’s Hari Raya duit raya (money) packets.

This is the first time the youth’s work has been featured on money packets, so it’s understandable that he’s overjoyed.
