Cats 🐈, Beach 🏖, Illustration 🎎, and Marie Kondo 👩‍💼

Could you tell a bit about yourself?

Hey — I am an introvert person who loves cats. I like travelling, either in Bali or other areas. Travelling can make me see the other side of the places that I visited.

Yay! Travelling

What brought you into the design and how did you start your career?

I really like drawing since I was a child. Manga is one of something that inspired me to draw.

What project you are working on at the moment?

For now, I’m working on TURNN project, especially on the App Project. It is an integrated MaaS (Mobility as a Service) app-based to plan and book mobility services for your trips, with only using one app.

What typical challenges do you face at your company?

Because we are a new startup, obviously we need to build it from scratch. Especially the design team, while we only have 3 members.

By the way, what is your favourite project that you have done or been doing so far?

Melalie is my favourite project. I learn a lot from building this App from the beginning. Having real products in front of me also makes me motivated to start the day to solve the problem that we had.

Where do you get the inspiration from for your work?

I install some of the similar applications or visited a similar website. Some of the inspiration I seek on the Dribbble.

What music do you listen to while designing?

I like to listen to lo-fi music while working, it keeps me stay focused.

What product have you recently seen that made you think this is great design?

Dropbox. as I know previously dropbox was just file sharing places. but now their changes really make an impact on me. How they can make the user easier made a document, how easy to add many tools.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Watch K-movies, go to the beach, or go to the mountains. Learn how to play the ukulele. Read a book.

Marie Kondo Books

What would be your advice for beginner designers who want to pursue a design career?

As a Designer who changes my Career path, I’d say don’t worry to bravely do something new. If you don’t try it, you will not know.

Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise. Seek what they sought. — Matsuo Basho
