Interview to Bobby Haiqalsyah, Australia

What is the moment of the day you enjoy the most?

At night when everything’s quiet and I’m in the zone working away.

What kind of music do you listen to?

Different kinds of music depending on my mood or the time of the day.

Please list 5 resources across any media you tune in to regularly.

Organizedwonder, behance, pinterest, people that I follow on twitter, dribble.

How would you describe your style?

An innovative approach to type and lettering with a sound respect to the traditions.

Are there any designers/artists/architects from the past whose work you admire?

Probably too many to mention.. I alway liked the work of Like Minded Studio that’s headed by Luca Ionescu and the works of Alex Trochut who are both without a doubt were inspired by the works of Herb Lubalin who I admire as well.

Describe a typical working day.

It’s a bit sporadic actually, I usually work till I drop doing the thing that I love doing.

What would your dream work be like?

Something that evokes an emotional response in people and survive the test of time.


Is there someone you would like to work for?

I would love to have worked for Herb Lubalin, or these days probably either Louise Fili or Stefan Sagmeister.

Can you recommend some of your favorite books?

Ellegantissima by Louise Filli and Herb Lubalin’s new Monograph by Adrian Shaughnessy.

What do you expect for the future?

Whatever it is it’s going to be amazing…
