MINIAPOLIS -a journey of wonders-

This project is one of my most exciting project and marked my first step in my career! It was a long story...
so let's begin with who is the man or perhaps woman behind this project?

I believe we have to thank Maureen Theosabrata & Irene Ng who is assigned by Plaza Indonesia to do this project,
they are the consultant of this project and came with the idea of combining children playground and retail area along
with the concept, with a trackless train that you could ride inside a shopping mall and other fun stuff.

Later on Eric Widjaja and i join the team to do the branding and identity.
After few months of working Maureen, Irene, Eric and I decided to took over the interior design responsibilities and start to work...

Zee and Milo named after english word "Smile", smart rather nerd sister and a curious little brother
later on having an adventure to the City of Wonders Miniapolis.
I made this character for almost one month with tons of revision on the details.
