Hello, my name is Rifat!


I’m an Enterprise Design Thinking Practitioner certified by IBM, the company I’m currently working for.

I also have various certifications from The Interaction Design Foundation, including Web Design for Usability, Human-Computer Interaction, and Accessibility.

I co-founded Sinergi Muda — a youth-led NGO aimed to develop and empower the potential of the youths; and Semesta — an all-in-one creative consulting agency.

I’m currently working at IBM as a Senior User Experience Designer. I have worked in various industries, from NGO to agencies to startups to MNC, most recently was spending 3 years at GOJEK as Web Project Manager and Web UI Design Lead.

I received my BA in Visual Communication Design from Universitas Paramadina. I have two beautiful women in my life right now, my wife and my daughter.
