Hadi Ismanto is the founder and CEO of New Media Folder, a media company comprising of Manual Jakarta, an independent online publication focusing on lifestyle in Jakarta, MALT, a Jakarta-based graphic design agency and just recently, The Third Company, a social marketing agency.
An Arts graduate from The University of Melbourne, Hadi had worked as a Journalist for Meld Magazine and became the Editor of OZIP Magazine (Indonesian community magazine in Melbourne) during his final year of study.
After graduating from Melbourne, he went back to Jakarta to find a fast-paced city with a progressing lifestyle that somehow reminds him of Melbourne’s city culture. However, he felt that the nation’s capital still lacks the ideal platform that selects and represents all the best things and happenings in town. Hence, Manual Jakarta was established in 2014 and the following years, MALT and The Third Company entered the picture. Hadi is currently serving as the Director of Strategic Communications in ADGI (Asosiasi Desainer Grafis Indonesia) Central Executive Committee.
