Wrapped Journal 2020: Better Us, Better You
It’s hard to believe that we will all say goodbye to 2020 and dive into the new decade. Then, what does that mean? It’s time to take lessons from the past and move forward into 2021 with big dreams.
If you look at this 2020 journal, you will also know how we plan this whole thing. We could say it’s not an easy action. It takes a lot of heads involved. That’s why we decided to try something new for this 2020 journal. We want to be more open to all of you about who we are. Even though we have several published journals, this one will be different and come back with the motto “Better Us, Better You.” After a full year of struggling with planning, we want to create our wrapped journal nicely. We give our wrapped journal with a lot of spotlights and memorable things.
Allow us to share our 2020 wrapped journal. We are ready to go!
Wrapped Journal 2020: Products of the Year
What items? Precisely, the thousands of presentation templates. We create templates every day, and we don’t feel like we have produced more than 3000 templates. That’s crazy! We have more than 20 designers. How come only 20 designers can create that much? Maybe they have a Thanos ability that can flick his fingers at once. Who knows.
From the thousands of templates we have, there are the five best items selected by our client:
This template was created by Bayu and Yoga, our awe-inspiring designers, with million ideas in their heads. They’re like the brains of all the designers here. When Bayu was interviewed, he explained the reason this template was made. Bayu said, “We need something a little bit extreme by giving a touch of color that most people might be afraid to experiment with.” He wanted to try something different. In the end, it’s about making something memorable and looks professional without ignoring the essence of the presentation, even with a striking color.”
Secondly, to make this template more alive, they also gave a motion design to it. “We also want to bomb the brand-sell, so we play hard with strong colors and motion,” added Bayu. Interesting! That’s how the story behind this ‘3 in 1 sports template’ was made.
There is a template called Gradient. Again, Bayu and Yoga created this. One day, Yoga found one poster on Behance. He said that the poster has holographic colors and a technological vibe. “The color is so impressive, so we want to apply it to a presentation template,” said Bayu. Not surprisingly, their good visual sense is real. They did their best. This template is now thriving in attracting clients’ attention around the world.
Besides, it’s not easy to make a gradient style. We must be careful at combining colors. Or, if not, it becomes tacky. “Not all designs are fit with gradient colors; it is complicated actually,” said him during an interview.
We think that Bayu deserves an Awards Trophy. His template is in the top 5, Smart Deck. This template is an educational-themed template suitable for any scholarly material and business. When we asked him about his difficulties, he answered, “It is quite complex to combine three different scopes but still 1 group.” Indeed, this template has three different education levels: elementary school, high school, and college. Each grade must have additional elements, colors, and characters. You can imagine the complexity of it, right?
“If I separate them into three parts, it’s very not efficient.” He looks for solutions by making general themes. This template is similar to In Games Creative, consisting of three scopes in 1 slide. In his exploration, Bayu formulated different color compositions and elements to create a fun style for a professional look. Fun for elementary school and professional look for middle and college.
Gilang also got lucky for this game. Red-Cov, his masterpiece, is dedicated to medical workers surviving this pandemic. Gilang explained, “The red color represents the prevention, while the minimalist layouts show hygiene in the medical world aspect.”
Oh yeah, Gilang is our master chef. He is very hectic in the kitchen, while the others take a delivery order or make an instant noodle when hungry. He always spreads out a good smell after hours of work. One more thing, his joke is full of satire and sarcasm. Note from him: Don’t take it too seriously.
This man knows how to make people happy. Not only jokes but also his creativity can inspire us. He is Galang, the one who created this template. He made this template out of his mind simply because his team had no briefing. So he just spontaneously created a template based on his random idea.
The concept of Membrane originated from cell membranes in humans. This template has colorful features, such as yellow, pink, green, etc. Just like the distinctive look of the cell membrane. “Making this template is not easy thought that my first experience. I want this template still look clean, even crowded,” said Galang. The layout arrangement must also be appropriately considered to avoid the fuss.
Behind their stories, making a presentation project more desirable is not an easy task since they must know their needs and emotions. Indeed, they have their obstacles to be faced. Plus, everything must be examined carefully and efficiently. They want to say the last words to you are, “Our confidence and effort will never betray you.”
Then, how many templates have we made?
Very much! More than 17,854 slides were created. It means that our designers have made 452 templates with 1007 projects completed.
On top of that, our templates have already sold over 8246 templates. Simultaneously, the most downloaded templates are the 2020 Signature Multipurpose Template, which has already sold over 8246 templates. That’s cool!

Wrapped Journal 2020: Throwback Time
RRGraph was founded in 2015, which means that RRGraph is already five years old. That’s a young age, but we have to run as fast as possible. Now, we have grown up together. Our transformation looks very significant, as seen from the two photos below.
I guess you will chuckle when seeing this photo. These people are similar to first-year college students in their first year. This photo was taken in 2016 when there were only several employees, including one woman. By the way, we worked at a house. You wouldn’t expect that it was an office, would you? From this place, our strong kinship blossomed.
It’s not magic. In August 2019, our new building was ready to be occupied. What we wished for finally arrived. The new facility is not too corporate; it’s more like a comfortable and family-friendly coworking. We have lots of large PCs, comfy desks, comfortable chairs, and superb facilities we didn’t have before. Everything feels complete here. RRGraph is our second home, and we are glad to live in a harmonious family. (Note: If you want to know more about our history, please kindly check this write-up below)
This year, we saw many moves, like the management, employee regeneration, new roles, and the total population. Now, we have 37 employees here. We were really in the ups and downs situation. Trial and error was a common thing we faced. It’s pretty hard, but everything that passed this year will make us stronger.
Wrapped Journal 2020: Bloopers of the Year
This is our favorite part. Sharing our random facts with you is a pleasant thing. You can tell me your favorite one after reading all of it. To tell you the truth…
Our agency has 11 women. The two of them have married. It means that we have two Moms: Azzahra and Aribah. Aribah is pregnant with her first baby. We also have Anyn. She knows everything about delicious foodies and recommended places to visit. Don’t worry, and she also loves cooking for us. Thank you for taking care of us.
Secondly, we used to have four cats, but now we only have 1. Her name is Welly. She is fat and very lazy. Eating and sleeping are her hobbies. The only person most loved by Welly is Anyn. Look at her gaze; she is good at making us feel scared. But Welly is adorable with her chubby cheeks, and we can’t handle it.
We have a small canteen. There are snacks, instant noodles, and drinks. The best-selling is instant noodles and eggs instead of the presentation templates. We cannot buy anything without a presentation template, especially instant noodles. It’s no surprise that we get overweight quickly. Carbo everywhere.
Almost all our employees are coffee lovers. Some like black coffee, some like milk coffee. This kettle seems to be our best friend in the kitchen. We usually take 10-15 minutes to make a drink before starting to work. Not only coffee, but we can also choose non-coffee drinks like Cereal Energen, Teh Tarik, and Nutrisari.
Did you know that we have an official HR this year? His extrovert personality can overcome dozens of complicated humans in this office. He knows how to develop us and help with any problems. His random jokes are sometimes tricky to understand, but that makes him unique. Don’t tell anyone of it, and sometimes he is so annoying. Say hello to Baihaqi, aka Heqi!
RRGraph also has a Campaign Manager. This is the first time we have had that role. He joined last November. His name is Aldy. This month, he is still taking probation for two months. Our marketing strategist, Jibril, supervised him. Jibril and Aldy will be perfect partners. Jibril has an analytical mind, while Aldy has a creative mind as an executor. The combination of them will produce a ready concept for the campaign.
Ding Dong! It’s time for Ping Pong! Who doesn’t want to stay long in the office if there is new table tennis here? Let’s play like a champion!
It started with three college guys who experimented with PowerPoint and made money with it. Interestingly, the money is spent on lots of PCs, cat food, a friendly workspace, air-conditioning, and a relaxed kitchenette so their employees can be happy. All in all, without your everlasting support, everything in RRGraph today will never be the same.
Are you ready for the new year?
Despite struggling with our journey in 2020, we are very excited to start afresh chapter in 2021. We feel like we have the opportunity to start something new and get back into all the good things that we haven’t achieved. Hopefully, this thrilling new year spirit will take us beyond this wrapped journal and well into the following months! Gracias! And see you again next year. Better us, better you.
