This agency has an office precisely at Jl. Cipete 7 no.65, South Jakarta. The office is a home residence that they functioned as the office, the studio which is quite convenient for work, exchange ideas and also relax. This office works from Monday – Friday, on Monday where all members are required to attend to exchange ideas, and discuss the project that will they handle later on.
They think it is very interesting, they differentiate lounge and workspace, because ideas can not only be found on the desk alone. In the studio, there are a wide variety of artwork, samples, materials, furniture, some of the stuff they already apply to their projects.
Projects that they have done quite a lot. Ranging from well-known companies such as BMW, Hermes, and some name that is already well known as well. They began trying to produce “home living products” with the name of “Studio Half “.
Systems work that they are doing here is very interesting, they have the advantage with a sufficient number of members, and where each member has the ability and character are different. It is easier for them to exchange ideas, and produce work that is different in every project.
Systems that they have already applied can be quite professional, where they began to apply a monthly salary to each of its members. This office has been running for 2 years.
“Whatever workshop” is one of several agencies that provide services of “Art & Design”, this is an advantage for them which they apply the “art and design” concept into a single unit, depending on the project what they get. The process of completing the project began preceded by a discussion with the client. After that they begin to exchange ideas, provide ideas or even give solution to clients , until the idea was approved by the client.
It is not easy to get approval from the client, since some clients do not just call one agency and also the client will only choose one of them. So far “Whatever Workshop” has got some clients who already has a name, which makes them have a good portfolio that is quite convincing.
