IKEA Print Ad – Indonesia; Adobe Photoshop

As an assignment for my Advertising class, we were tasked to create an ad for IKEA – a brand currently not available in Indonesia – for four prominent Indonesian magazines;

  • Go Girl Magazine: A magazine aimed at teenaged girls
  • Hai Magazine: A magazine aimed at teenaged boys
  • High End Magazine: A magazine for modern, upper-class women
  • Men’s Health: A magazine for modern, metrosexual men.

The four products featured in each ads are real IKEA products with real Swedish names. The Swedish names of the products are used in exchange of real Indonesian terms – HÅLLÖ for ‘halo’, KNAPPA for ‘kenapa’, etc – to form interesting wordplays in coherent and contextually-appropriate Indonesian sentences in each magazines.

Monggo Chilli Ice Cream – Billboard Ad: “Hot as Ice”; Adobe Photoshop

A mock-up of a billboard advertisement for Monggo Chocolate brand extension for an assignment.
Monggo Chocolate is a line of Chocolate from Indonesia with strong overtones of the traditions of Indonesia. One of the more unique variant Monggo offers is the ‘Red Chilli Chocolate Bar’. With that in mind, plus our concept of ‘Chocolate-Chilli Ice Cream’, the tagline “Hot as Ice" is the perfect phrase to describe the amalgam of zesty spice and icy goodness of the ice cream.

Loss. ; Adobe Illustrator + Adobe Photoshop, January 2013.

This is an assignment for my DKV 4 class; we are tasked to tell a story using pictures and pictures only.
My story is about the casualty of war; about how war can abruptly take your loved in the blink of an eye. Here we see a family saying their farewell to the father – until one day, war took the life of the father. The last panels shows the news being told to the wife and the blissful face of the daughter, waiting for her father to come back home – not knowing what truly lies ahead.
The juxtaposition of the bliss of the child’s face and the gruesome imagery of her dying father highlights the very reality of war – it can strike at any moment to anyone.

This is a DKV 4 assignment to redesign a small businesses’ logo around the campus. I chose "Bakmi Kaget", a small bakmi and Chinese food restaurant, for its low price range and lack of proper logo.
