Welcome to the premiere issue of Jandwee Journal. Thank you to those who put their trust on Jandwee Journal to carry the voices of your brands and creations. This journal is made for you creative artist to share your voices and to showcase all the vibrant colours through art, literature, photography and food, all that makes our life a lot like an adventure. In this issue, we are going to explore the ‘State of Freedom’, something that we all hold dearly to our hearts and beliefs. Freedom can’t be bought, given or borrowed, it can be achieved once we have accepted and embrace ourself as who we are. I can only hope that one day, we will not be judged by the wealth we accumulated, or by the clothes we put on, but simply how we care for our world and for each other. We are all beautifully different We are made different and we live differently We see different things, differently and that is the beauty of ‘freedom’. This journal is my homage to you once a lost soul that wants to be found and to be heard to be seen, to be understood and most of all... to be free. I can’t say thank you enough for my family, friends, Jandwee team and all the contributors who puts their believe in Jandwee Journal to carry out unique voices that we all crave to hear from. With great pleasure I present you our premiere issue, i hope to see a lot more of you in this pages soon.

Simply because I like to create without any boundaries or limitations, it could be hard sometimes because I do have to follow what my clients want, so it’s a tricky effort to consistently infuse my style with the market’s demand.

Kevin Hasan Master of the Ink

Read on how every simple stroke of ink brings more hope to the nation. @kevinhasan

Interviewed by :

Kevin Hasan

In today’s growing digital world, there is an infinite freedom in which an artist can express their mind. From a simple doodle drawn on your desk, to sharing it to everyone around the world. Even an old-fashioned journal can be transformed into a blog or vlog. The only limitations lies in how we use our freedom to utilize the digital world. I was in Malaysia for college, I decided to come back to Medan because I truly want to create new opportunities in my hometown. But the struggles is not about designing, it is educating the market of what effective advertisement is, creating awareness not by putting everything in a single billboard, but putting the right message effectively for the brand message to be delivered, for that people need to be a lot more open minded and be willing to learn a lot more outside their personal taste. That might cause a little mind block but daily routine is the archenemy of creativity. Never stay in one place, even if it simply your work space. Move around, exercise, just keep on refreshing yourself. All of that is important Jandwee Journal // 21

because I believe artistic style is not something simply chosen, but it is a portray of what you are within through your work of art. The variety of emotions, events, colors that I experienced to form my ideals. I initiated the Inktober in Indonesia through social media in 2015. It’s an annual event in October where artists from all around the world create an ink-based drawing once a day throughout October in order to create a creative drawing habit. In a month, the movement managed to received more than 16.000 artworks from all over Indonesia and still increasing. I take great pride to be able to inspire people nationwide scale to freely express themselves through the work of pen, with great hope that we can be free to draw whatever we want someday. 22

on, every designs are catered for the very unique request that women has. Being a designer is much more than simply being a label, or a brand. It is about embracing yourself and to not live in denial. You have to create something you love, but you have to make sure you can sell those. Never be satisfied with what you have already achieved. Be secure but always be curious, always thirst for more, and that is the only way you can conquer. Rules and regulations can be an unfamiliar ground for creative minds, but always take responsibility to your decisions. To establish your brand, you should never go with the flow. To me, it is not simply about gracing batik to embrace my Indonesian roots, it’s a lot more. People know a lot of stuff that are made in China, but they only know the cheap stuff that are made there, not the skills nor the craftsmanship. My core brand value is to showcase pieces that are made in Indonesia, by Indonesians, that’s how you truly embrace the meaning of local going global. To achieve that, I believe to never go with flow, instead, go against the streams. Lead your customer to understand why certain pieces will cost them extra. There are so many unwritten societal rules and regulations in Indonesia. but for creative thinkers, it is indeed an unfamiliar ground. I can only hope that one day, we can all accept everyone’s different views and taste as it is, as they are. When we can accept each other, then we have achieved an absolute freedom.

Januardy Wijaya

Q: So, with age comes wisdom, who is Cindy in 2016? A: I’ve become someone who strives harder both in academically and works. I go out more this past months which help me become someone wiser and more open minded. Q: With so many influencers, bloggers, instragammers, how do you differentiate yourself and stay unique? A: I always make sure that every single thing that I post defines me. I follow some of the fashion trend and always give my own stamp on everything that I use and publish. Q: Medan is vastly improving, from design, business and event fashion. What are the major changes you have experienced with your friends that makes you realized, ‘Medan is actually doing better’ ? A: Young adults of Medan are improving so much, they are a lot more open-minded to creativity. There’s a lot more room for arts, fashion, sports and culinary and everything is just on the next level. It is now a huge deal to be in those industries, it’s amazing that we are able to reach this level of interest. Q: What is your personal icon that you look up to in your daily life? A: I don’t really have a personal icon, I like to wear and use products that are close to my heart and my comfort level. Everything that is personalised is always better, so that my friends and followers can truly know what I am truly about.
