People call me Jack-of-the-trade; give me your organization’s Marketing Communications problems, and you will be happy to get 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 realize that I have an adamant desire to solve 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 companies, from the hospitality industry to manufacturing.
OK, now let’s do cool stuff together!
I am a strategic creative thinker as well as a technical savvy executive who is familiar to collaborate in a multi-national environment. Excels at concept development, creative direction, and its implementations alongside with great focus on business visions. Adept at managing all phases of marketing and brand strategy, project and product life cycle, from research and development, market sensing, and idea development through implementations. Skilled at utilising the analyzing tools and design software to optimize brand awareness, boost market presence and gain customer loyalty.
In my previous employment, I have built a proven record of developing local and international brands and startups and brought business solutions at the intersection of marketing, branding, design, communications, and human capital as well as a team builder and mentor focused on sustainable solutions for clients.
During my first years of employment, I was successfully collecting wide-ranging accolades in product development, research and development, creative direction, and marketing collaterals, in addition to my latter professional experience in media, commercial photography, and public relations.
