About Me

My name is Irvan. I am a self-taught Graphic Designer based in Bogor, Indonesia. I was born in October as a tea lover. In my spare time, I like to read a book or article from the internet. I also like to listen and playing music. Helping people is one of my passion.

I always excited when talk about business and entrepreneurship since I have been trying to run small business when I was in college. Taking economics major in Bogor Agricultural University (IPB) has helped me to do so.

I still remember when I want to start a business, I always start from creating its Logo. And then, I create its website. So many times I only create that two things and dreaming that my business will be run someday somehow. But the dream never happened. And then I think "Why not I build a business that helps people to make a Good Visual Identity and Digital Appearance?". Finally, I founded Purlo Studio in 2012 that I hope I can help many people to develop their business through Digital Branding Strategy.
