Indonesia Design’s 68th edition was published in May 2015 and to formally launch it, we held a party. Feted at the rooftop of Komunal88, Jalan Ampera, South Jakarta, on Wednesday, 3 June 2015, we invited local talents, designers, advertisers and friends of our ‘Product Designs and Local Talents’- themed edition.
Our editor in chief Lina Gan kick-started the event with a speech, followed by a curtain opening procession to unveil the cover of Indonesia Design’s 68th edition. This opening of the curtain was done alongside Joshua Simandjuntak, the guest editor of the edition. The event continued with a presentation by Nady Azhry, the talented artist who designed the cover illustration for this edition and a couple of previous ones as well. He explained how the concept he experienced while collecting, drawing and gathering all products depicted on our cover. The launch party went on with more presentations from Denny Priyatna, Fauzy Prasetya of Kandura Studio, Kafin Noe’man and his colleagues from Live with Bambi, Ilham Pinastiko of Matoa and Rita Dharani of Mata Timur. We extend our special thanks to our sponsors PT. Sarindo Makmur Sejahtera for the wine and Budweiser beers, and the Komunal88 kitchen team for the delicious canapés.
