We maintain a close relationship with two design associations based in Indonesia. ADGI (Asosiasi Desain Grafik Indonesia) is one of the largest design association in Indonesia, while DGI (Desain Grafis Indonesia) is one of the most popular graphic design institutions in Indonesia.
The first collaboration we've ever done was for "World Silent Day" a poster exhibition about the Hindu tradition in conjunction with environmentalism. We decided to create a poster in the form of a blank newspaper to speak about the concept of giving the earth a rest for one day.
A lecture followed by a workshop was titled Broken Label, which focuses on multidisciplinary approach to contemporary design practice, a phylosophy that we embrace fully.
The first Collaboration with DGI was in the form of a two day workshop held in Jakarta, Indonesia. The lecture and workshop focuses on the uses of design to influence behaviors.
This book is a historical archive of Indonesian Graphic Design by Hanny Kardinata, the founders of DGI. The book tells the story of Indonesian Graphic Design in conjunction with the development of graphic design around the world. We were invited to design one of the chapter dividers in the book.
To celebrate the 70th anniversary of Indonesia independence, ADGI was given the task to develop a seal by the government. We were invited to be one of the designers to submit a proposal for this occasion. We looked into all the historical archive of graphic design that has been developing in Indonesia before and after its independence, and we use that to develop a fitting seal for the country.
