Opus – BEKRAF Outlook 2017

Commencing its ambitious venture to become a leading creative economy, Indonesia created Indonesian Agency for Creative Economy or BEKRAF after the mandate of the president. Among its tasks is to publish data, information, and report on creative economy in Indonesia as handbook for their industry players.

We bring the premier issue of Opus, a publication presenting an outlook on creative economy in 2017. Originally attributed to musical composition, the meaning of opus is stretched into ‘a large-scale work of art’. Opus is written with the aim of recording and tracing creative opuses of Indonesia, while presenting forecast and hopefuls of the upcoming year.
Central information on creative economy welcomes the readers as introduction to the book, complete with graphics and numbers giving an insight to the actuality of creative economy in Indonesia. In the later chapter, we present the sixteen of creative economy sub-sectors including the bright names and figures of every sub-sector. As one of its purposes is to introduce BEKRAF, Opus provides a chapter of BEKRAF activities through its six divisions up to the present. A further elaboration of prospect and challenges Indonesia will face in its venture closes the book.

“In an effort to add unique factor without losing its formal touch, we use the colors black and gold of BEKRAF to adorn the cover. BEKRAF logo sits at the center – its gold hue stands out in striking contrast to black backdrop. Using simplicity and readability as its approach to designing layout, we ensure that Opus would become an informative book that is accessible to its readers.”
