Helvetotebag is just simple tote bag, with cheap enough and eco-friendly materials. Words can be printed there, using a well-known typeface (font) called Helvetica.

In this case, I try to explore more about how to pack the product better. I use cardboard to make box for each totebag. And put on Helvetotebag letter on the cardboard using rubber stamp. Quite messy but actually I like it. hehe.. :)

In this video, I try to depict that Helvetotebag is be able to change the anxiety and joyless to be the opposite - Happy and confident! :)

have a joyful day, everybody! :D

Dentist Name Card

We all know, there's so much great references of name cards. But what would you like to do? copy paste it? or just think that name card is not a big deal? I'm sorry, I do really care about this one. Name card is one of our weapon to let people know about us. Haha.. no offense, its just thought of mine.

Yuvita want me to make name card for her early new career, a dentist. And I just came up with this idea. I make it simple, using 2 colors (dark brown v.s orange), and I put a simple local (Java) proverb. "Ojo Ulat Peteng". It means don't stop smiling, then your activity will work well. This is obviously an important message the dentist have to say to people. Dentist is doctor who help people having their best smile.

I give a simple smiley icon, and I wrote the proverb in Javanese ancient script. So, enjoy the result. And I hope you'll be a great dentist, Yuvita! :D

And then I drew some sketch on the plywood. I just make some dots following the lines. And I drill it. drrr drrr drr.. :))
