Graphic and fashion are 2 things easily making mutual connections together. Once paired up, they compliment each other and it becomes unstoppable. It seems like the perfect match. From the fascination of graphic design and the emerging trends of casual T's, this little fella' product is born. Without trying to take credit from anybody, the product is originated by uncompromising joint venture. Now, starting fresh, the line independently takes part of Cuppa's product proliferation.
It comes in T's for 1 to 5 years old (size: S, M & L) and in onesies/bodysuit for 3-6months, 6-12months old. Graphic options are: Origami animal edition (turtle or mice) and expression/statement print (Love Mom).

Dani SolichinDirectorPT Prambanan Kencana

"I am totally satisfied with the quality of work that Cuppa Studio has produced. They follow the concept that I wanted. My request was pretty complicated: to turn old fashioned logo into a fresh one, without losing its great old spirit of the company. As soon as I told Cuppa this concept, 'Voila!' The creative team turned it into one great brand for a palm oil company, which gives a new fresh look for the company. I also satisfied with the duration of the project: it was quick. I totally recommend Cuppa Studio to anyone who wants a new fresh logo/brand image."
Palacheta Subies SubiantoVice-Director PT. Kallista Alam p.s.subianto@lse.ac.uk

“I contacted Cuppa Studio to see if they could help me re-invigorate my corporate logos. Not only did the team at Cuppa take the time to listen to me and give me fantastic feedback they took the time in making sure I got exactly what I wanted. From originally wanting only a few things done I got Cuppa to transform my logos, brochures and other marketing tools. I highly recommend Cuppa to anyone wanting to take their business to the next level! Thanks Cuppa!!”
Blake Brinklow Managing Director Grasshopper Soccer

Great lesson doesn't have to be the hard way, ..

Hi Hi...

I have been busied trying to diversify Cuppa Studio services these few months. The attempt to test the water is surely causing enough anxiety to make goosebumps to shrivel. I challenge myself to welcome new product to Cuppa's service. Web design. To kick off, whether it's a blessing or curse, I didn't restrict myself in a humble beginning. I scored 'big brother' project with the upcoming sports shoes label in Indonesia. When I say big brother project, it is not to be measured through the size or the cost/value of the project. But more on the great deal of time and heart put into it. And ...have I said time..... yeah... again, time. Through gruelling process, the project is now almost there, with few bits and pieces still to be improved 'n completed.
Phhhhhhhuuuih, sigghhhh, aissssssh, yessssssss, %$!*&%##!, RRrrrrrrrr, tskkkkkkkkkk, $%**&%!$$#@, and more are the many expressions I gained & lost from this experience. Not only did I learn from the business perspective of it, but also learn great deal from the importance of picking the right people to work with and the right project to pursue. I indeed have experienced so much of new valuable lessons involved in this new seeded area I'm trying to tap Cuppa into. Please visit Cuppa's initial web design work : http://www.pieroshoes.com/
Proudly presents what I call spectacular attempt of newbies pro :)
Take it easy...

Budget label

Hi again!
This new Boterman project had been completed since last December. Only that I just have the quiet time to update my 'unabandoned' blog now...

Many dairy products, especially butter/ margarine packed inside closed tin packaging to preserve freshness, usually illustration using 2 or 3 colours only, carrying out 'vintage/classic' look.
During the time, I was posed with manufacturing challenge to produce cheaper label using direct print-to-tin method; this is without comprimising the design appeal/ aesthetic. The method of using minimal colour will greatly reduce the cost of printing. This is interesting, since the first Boterman label is created in full coloured illustration and the productions cost has apparently blown up to the level, which during this economic crisis, impulsive choice isnt the best medicine anymore for many businesses. I guess the owner opted for more tactful business decision to house the colours than his human labours :)~ *current picture shows just the illustration. I will update picture of the real packaging as soon as I complete the photography.

Developing the right creative flare for the brand

For those of you whom have familiarized with my blog, you will immediately recognized the cartoon character displayed on above, playing the"PR" role for the company. After being on hold for a year, he is now ready to take his lead which I have developed him for!

The business concept behind the sports based franchise company is pretty "healthy", what the company need as a lifestyle business is however a strong brand image which is recognisable, fresh and lingering to prospect customers' mind. It must have the ability to create trend which eventually promote better living and positive attitude.

These underlying basis lead to the development of the unique brand applying to its id's, products/merchandises and variety of marketing& sales tools. A well rewarded project. Look forward for the next fantastic works!

Land use national logo competition 2008

Hey, hey... the national holiday is coming soon, in fact I will be taking vacation earlier than the rest of people in the country :)...

Btw, I want to scoop out new stuff I have completed. I hope you enjoy reading the story behind it. Here you go...

Department of Occupational Affairs, Republic Indonesia (RI) organized Land Use logo competition for celebrating The World’s Land Use Anniversary 2008, I enter one in to participate the national event. The concept essentially capturing the spirit of human living space interacted and surrounded by the ocean, the environment and urban landscape. The establishment of industry, agriculture, residential district, commerce and infrastructures brought us to the reality of massive effect the urban development causes to our planet earth. The logo encourages the awareness of balance and care of the land use, we can then keep preserving its existance for the future generations.

I'm still waiting on the result though, so wish me luck! Happy holiday y'all

New project! Kallista Alam

Finally, I'm happy to publish yet another exciting project. It's been a while since I wrote, the economy slows down and it's taken its toll to small business effort alike, like mine :P... but it's great to get my creative juices going again for this entirely new work.The vice director, whom by the way is a budding young entrepreneur, gave me the chance to build a new look for his father's oil (CPO) company. The old logo, to me looks traditional, although, it is believed to have several strong philosophy behind it. I did came up with several fresh design concepts based on the nature of the business. And I pursued him to take the plunge to go for new image. However in respect to company's values & traditions, as a designer, I ought to obey my client requirement.I redesign the monogram so that it looks more modern aesthetically, and also to be more symbolic representing the key business of the company, which is bio oil. Although my personal taste prefers one of the alternative concept for the company to have, I guess what matters is client's satisfaction. Bottom line, that is the moral of the project.
Cheers! I'll see you again on the next chapter.........peace

Blue Pacific, processed fruits product

Blue Pacific project was completed recently this year. I was basically called up to wave a magic wand on the poor old design.

The product is a processed fruit brand mainly catering to industrial consumers; such as hotels, bakeries, cakeries and local pastry makers.
I created the product with new logo (which originally it didn't have), just to devise the product with a stronger branding characteristic.
The label based on client's request to potray the name literally : ‘Blue Pacific’. Having that in mind, so I did a breezy background, just to be a little more subtle but representative with the ocean theme. The choice of typefonts and colors were predominatly also applied in keeping with the theme.
I've received a lot of positive feedbacks on this design project. Well, it's rewarding when people love your work, especially the client.
Comparable with the old design and client's satisfatiction factors, I think I'm pleased with my work.
What do you think?...Have your say..

Koji, Processed Cheese product

Koji is a processed cheese product originated from Japan. When client requested for a label with unusual approach, the label was designed with irregular shape featuring an emblem-like shape. It functions both as an information label and closure for the vacuum plastic packaging.

Grasshopper Soccer Club - one most enjoyable design I did!

Grasshopper Soccer Club (GHS) is a franchise business running a children’s soccer club based in Perth, Australia.
Founder of GHS club required an update look for the logo and mascot of the club, yet still keeping the important message of the old design.
Since adults (parents) are the main objective of the business, factors such as fun, excitement and professionalism are key to the success of the project.

Frutaneira - Processed fruits product

Fruitaneira is my first commercial project completed for local company.
This project is one of my early well-done works which tail to the next projects.
There were bitter sweet times completing this particular project, as it wasn't easy for me to convince client with 'tasteful' artwork when their mindset is conventional and rather stubborn.
You know, the kind of people who is so bogged down with their own idea of aesthetics?
By experience, learning from working in the industry where objectivity of what looks good or what not is sensitive, I was taught to work the skill of blending the magic potion to blow clients away with the so called professionalism. Just do it right, when they are pleased, then you are on the right track.
Moving on with the project, the product needs a label to be designed to represent the fruit fillings inside the can. Strategically, the goods hold the standard of European quality processed fruit products. I created new logo to apply branding standard and built the concept, which was based to convey elegance and conservative quality for buyers to capture.
I aimed at maintaining both logo and illustrations to go hand in hand between 'classy' and 'classic'... as a combo :)
I'm opened to opinions and comments...
Have your say...
