Head of Visual Communication Design Study Program
The Creative Economy Agency shows data that currently the creative industry is the motor of growth for Indonesia’s economy. DKV itself is one of the creative economy sub-sectors that is experiencing rapid growth. It is clear that the presence of visual communication designers is needed to continue to increase the nation’s economic growth.
In order to be part of the driving force for economic growth, DKV Kalbis will invite students to become “modern”, namely being able to open themselves up to social dynamics and technological developments. This will hone their sense of empathy which will encourage thinking and imagination so that they are able to present innovative works.

During my teaching at Kalbis Institute, I found interesting things starting from the comfortable atmosphere because both the lecturers, staff, and employees were friendly, also had unique and clean building facilities. The teaching system is neat but fun to make students active so they want to explore and get new experiences. Kalbis Institute also helps to introduce students and their work by creating work exhibitions that are open to the public.
This is the entertainment industry, so game designers have to have a creative mind and also have to be able to stand up against the marketing people at their company – otherwise they cannot be creative. There are not that many people who fit that description.
