"Design is directed toward human beings. To design is to solve human problems by identifying them and executing the best solution."
Chermayeff, contemporary designer
Here's a little bit about me. My name is Oky Sulistio. I was born in a small town called Bandung in Indonesia. I have always enjoyed the arts and have been blessed with a talent. Neither one of my parents were artists, nor any of my other family members. But somehow at a very early age, I could pick up a pen, pencil, or just create visions that were in my mind. So I am truly thankful for being blessed with an artistic talent, and with this talent, my life would be more easily directed as the years went by.
Most of my design influences are difficult to pinpoint. I discover bits and pieces that I respond to and let them influence me. Our environment is a wonderfully complex thing, and it never fails to reward the curious. I am inspired by everything around me, from the smallest sweet wrapper blowing in the wind to the largest building advertisement 20 stories tall. I spend a lot of time just looking at nature: trees, insects, birds...being fascinated at the pure beauty of the world, both eastern and western culture. Nothing should be discarded from thought when brainstorming a new project. Keep your mind open and let your thoughts roam free. Every visual object can be interpreted into graphic design.
All this has given me a very unique insight into communication. I understand what they want and why they want it. What they need and why they need it. And how they go about getting it. Which is why I am great at what I do.
I have used this insight to polish, cultivate and adapt my skills, in a never-ending mission to learn so that I can continue to be on the cutting-edge of information sharing.
I listen. I learn. I implement.
Having me on your side, you can rest assured you will get the best of the best. Because second best will never do.
It's my life...
