Songs to Guide Your Way Home by Gema Semesta

A soothing yet full of nostalgia mixtape.

by Whiteboard Journal


As a graphic designer and illustrator, Gema Semesta has done a variety of projects which span from creative direction in film (Aruna & Lidahnya), restaurant and bars (BIKO Group), to collaborations with fashion brands (Mote Mote). In doing his work, he differentiates the way he approaches art and design. On one hand, he realizes that art is merely a tool for creative expression when drawing. On the other hand, he focuses more on creating something that is carefully considered out of simplicity and humility when designing.

In this new edition of Selected, he has selected a few tracks that are best listened to when driving your way back home, with nothing but rows of trees around you.
