Selamat Paskah !

Selamat Paskah is a greeting about Easter in Indonesian language. Catholic and Christian celebrate it every year.

Talking about Easter, Catholic people used to fasting during Pra-Paskah, which starts with Rabu Abu. The fasting is not like our moslem friends do, which are not allowed to eat or drink in particularly time. But Catholic people must eat fully once a day and have a deal with theirselves about an idea to not do particular activity every Friday.

Then, Catholic people have a holy week before Paskah. They also used to go to church to attend Minggu Palma (Palm Sunday), Kamis Putih (Holy Thursday), Jumat Agung (Good Friday) and Sabtu Suci (Easter Vigil).

On Palm Sunday, Catholic People celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem as a beginnin of the holy week. Next, Holy Thursday is the commemoration of the Last Supper of Jesus. On Good Friday, they remember how Jesus are suffered and died by crucifixion as the ultimate sacrifice for people’s sins. Then, they celebrate resurrection of Jesus from the dead on Paskah (Easter Sunday).

In this modern era, Easter is closed enough with the art of egg painting / Easter Egg and bunny. I still have no idea why Easter Egg and Easter Bunny are related to this. I hope I’ll find out about it soon 😁

Happy Easter! Selamat Paskah!


Hari Buah (Fruit Day)

dsc_0520edI got a new project for celebrating Fruits Day at the largest media & publishing company’s group in Indonesia. The company’s group usually holds Fruit Day or Hari Buah every three months. They needed new design property and tagline for “wellness program”. The previous one used a wrong tagline and I think I should give a new look. What I should do was make 3 designs: 1 for backdrop, 1 for x-banner and 1 for 8 stickers. I was really excited! I had
a plan to make every employee loves the display and want to take some photos with it. The developing concept process was fun even I did it by myself. Here are my designs.

2 Projects, 3 Artworks, in One Week

I was hired as a freelance graphic designer at Human Resources Development Department of Gramedia Majalah (Kompas Gramedia Group of Magazine) about 3 weeks ago. At the first time they contacted me in the middle of March, they said they need stunning output at least before the month ends.

I was involved in 2 projects: 1) internship program ad; 2) standard operational procedure of training & development. The first project’s final output is print ad and digital ad on social media. The second project’s final outputs are book and kinda “calendar-book”.

At first, I tried to make design with chalkboard style. You know, the dark background with colorful content. Then, the color style I used in the end was the brighter one, with bright background and blue as the dominant color (the color of the company group).

Those projects were done in 8 workdays. I’m so happy that I could help them through my artworks. Hope many students will be interested to join their internship program and new comers in their department could learn the Standard Operational Procedure of Training & Development well 🙂
