Pirok goes to the city
I am delighted to have the opportunity to do a collaboration with an Indonesian author to make illustrations for a children book project about Orangutan 'Si Pirok ke Kota' or ‘Pirok Goes To the City’ . It was launched in London, May 2014.
The book is a story of Pirok, a curious little Orangutan who lives in the rainforest of Indonesia. One day he ends up in a basket belonging to a boy who was picking fruit to bring back home in town. The book tells the story about what happened to him.
The purpose of this book is to introduce different types of Indonesian flora and fauna to children from young ages between 3 to 9 years old. The storybook was written in Bahasa Indonesia and English in order to reach not just Indonesian speaking children but also an English speaking audiance.For the design, I used a water marble technique incorporated with real pictures and computer graphic techniques to make this book attractive to read.
The Indonesian Education Attaché’s Office in London has bought 500 copies of the 1st edition of ‘Si Pirok ke Kota’/‘Pirok Goes To the City’, and is being distributed for free to primary schools in the UK.
I am currently working on illustrations for the second book in the Pirok series.

identity / logo
Brand Identity design for Evidence & Analytics
Evidence & Analytics is a new company that specialises in business research and data analytics.
The identity that I created for the client has a modern look, yet remains relatively simple as the brand’s expertise is in providing readable output from data research, using charts and graphs as their medium. I chose a warm colour palette in order to give a friendly feeling as well as a humane touch to the overall look of the brand identity logo. Besides the main logo the design also followed by the letterhead, envelope and business card.
Indonesia Kontemporer or IKON is a cultural festival hosted by ARTi UK which is a non-profit organisation aiming and promoting Indonesian arts and culture within the UK’s cultural diversity.
I designed promotion and advertising materials to showcases Indonesian culture through the Indonesian Kontemporer 2012 event in London -UK. Borrowing from the Balinese tradition I illustrated this barong figure, as the eye-catching element, it features interesting graphic and mixed typographic elements to make a big public announcement.
logo / identity
Waroeng Bakoel Yanti is a local catering business in the Netherlands - The catering proudly serves an authentic Indonesian cuisine through personal and corporate events or just normal take away.
I illustrated a figure of Indonesian lady wearing a traditional Indonesian outfit named kebaya carrying a rattan basket filled with rice in it. ‘Bakul' original meaning is rattan basket for serving rice in Indonesian culture, with the Dutch influence of spelling, the term ‘Bakul’ becomes ‘Bakoel’. On top of that, rice is the essential aspect in the Indonesian culture and most native Indonesians eat rice as the main dish, with a wide range of vegetables and meat as side dishes. The overfull rice on the logo represents fertility, sanctity and good feelings.

These ads were created for WATH’s campaign, a lesbian and gay community in The Hague, the Netherlands, to promote 2 punk soul singer/songwriters known as RedNPink’s performance at the festival in 2013.
Contemporary Pattern Design
I love creating intricate patterns and my artworks are always inspired by the uniqueness of the diversity of tribes in Indonesia.
I created this contemporary pattern collection inspired by the uniqueness of Indonesian Heritage, Avant-Garde, Art Nouveau, Art Deco style and geometric shapes. I used different techniques and highly experimental prototype objects that swing between classic ornaments and modernity.
I have used some of the patterns to create handmade gift scarves and sell them through trade shows. I had a wonderful time doing this project and most importantly, I learnt so much about how rich and valuable traditions are throughout the making process.
By treasuring awareness of the traditional Indonesian textiles and applying them to modern techniques, hopefully my artworks can open new opportunities in the textile & fashion industry internationally but also preserve the Indonesian cultural heritage.
These patterns were printed on satin, turned into scarfs and sold in an auction for the 'home for handicapped children' in The Netherlands
As part of my artistic projects, I created this collection inspired by the 1942 Casablanca movie. I wanted a design that incorporated the 40’s style in an ordinary wardrobe. I was experimenting with denim fabric to create a wearable handmade hair accessory collection. The designs are casual yet classy and very neatly crafted.
My great interest for contemporary design and my lifelong passion for fashion and lifestyle drove me to create a collection of design cases for electronic devices such as mobile phones, kindles, and iPads. The concept behind this collection was inspired by ornamental decoration from different tribes in Indonesia.
