Isha Hening is a visual artist specializing in motion graphics with an extensive and colorful portfolio. As one of the pioneers in Indonesia's motion graphics landscape, Isha has worked with A-listers the likes of Raisa and Iwan Fals, and international artists like DJ Snake and Steve Aoki. Her vibrant, psychedelic works have also painted many big events in the past, such as the 2018 Asian Games, We The Fest, and Djakarta Warehouse Project. With new technologies coming up almost constantly, Isha isn't one to stay in her comfort zone. For example, she just collaborated with Mercedes Benz on an NFT collection. This grit, combined with her insistence on following her creative instinct, makes her one of Indonesia's most prized contemporary artists.
Hadi Ismanto is the founder and CEO of New Media Folder, the parent company of the online lifestyle magazine Manual Jakarta.

Now with his other current endeavors (ZOU, MALT Studio, etc.), Hadi is determined to constantly raise the bar for media in Indonesia.
