A.H BONG
Born to Chinese parents in Jakarta, Bong has benefited from a multicultural upbringing and is fluent in Indonesian and English. With his father being a much-respected Architect, Bong was exposed to the art community from a very young age and eventually decided to continue in his father’s footsteps by exploring the world of Graphic Design.

Bong first came to Australia in 1997 to study Graphic Design at the highly competitive Enmore Tafe. Having completed the course in 2000, he decided to journey back to Jakarta in search of work. After two years in the industry, Bong travelled yet again to Australia, this time to study Visual Communication at The University of Technology Sydney. Completing this course in 2006 Bong travelled back to Jakarta and landed a job with the prestigious design agency Great Heart Media. Working on everything from corporate identities to website design to magazine layout, Bong developed valuable skills and proved to be a rare talent in the industry. Working all the while as a freelance photographer, Bong consolidated all his knowledge and once again travelled to Australia, this time for a more permanent move.

Teaming up with long time friend Roen, Bong transferred his skills to post-production, swapping Photoshop and Illustrator for After Effects Bong created some remarkable video and proved he was too valuable a designer to lose. Along with his design skills Bong also brings a unique perspective. Having studied in Australia but been raised in Indonesia he has invaluable knowledge of Asian design and is a constant source of knowledge and inspiration regarding the Asian business community.
