A Tale to Tell

People call me Jack-of-the-trade; give me your organisation’s Marketing Communications problems, and you will be happy to get the fresh, creative and feasible answers from me.

 

Now, I work as a Freelancer, after ventured my experiences at Decovisual Group as Managing Director/Executive Creative Director for 7 years.

 

Since my University years in Institut Teknologi Bandung 21 years ago, I realise that I have an adamant desire to solving problems, embarrassing hang-ups on sketches and papers, a tenacious drive to create functional products, an instinct for good visuals, a resilient obsession to make a difference, and sufistic tendencies to make simpler things.

 

And those things bring me to right now. I’m an experienced Branding Strategist, Designer, Photographer, and Copywriter working on an array of projects from branding to web design, from startup companies to multinational company, from hospitality industry to manufacturing.

 

OK, now let’s do cool stuff together!
