We engaged in partnerships with people, businesses and communities to work on projects within cultural, creative and commercial sectors. Our work is communicating through print, environmental and screen-based modes.

Between 2015–16, the studio was the brand partner for the two-time Dewi Fashion Knight (DFK) designer, Felicia Budi; and currently responsible for the visual identity and art direction of Wonders of Weaving 2017 Series (2015–) and Korea-Indonesia Media Installation Art Exhibition (2016–).

The scope of our work often includes consultancy which allows us to build intelligent and effective design responses with a strategic perspective within the scope of different media. We believes that design has the power to contribute to progress, foster discussion, and facilitate change.
