Petshopbox Studio is a design studio that has been growing rapidly in Bandung, Indonesia. Graduating from Visual Communication Design and armed with their skills and knowledge in that department, CEO of Petshopbox Studio, Sissy, and co-founder, Kuswanto, decided to create their own design studio. At that time, Sissy and Kuswanto, who were avid pet lovers and owners chose “Petshopbox Studio” as their studio’s name.

In early 2000, Petshopbox Studio debuted as Comic Production Studio or “Manga” studio. However, due to other commitments that the co-founders had, the studio ceased operations for almost 3 years. In 2005, Comic Production Studio was revived again under the name Petshopbox Studio and as a brand new studio that focuses on high quality design in response to changing trends and technology. They brought their design services to a wide variety of elements including branding, mobile apps design and development, web design, mobile game design and much more.

Backlog, Project Management Tool for Petshopbox’s Simultaneous Works

With a small team at Petshopbox, the designers often have to handle multiple tasks. To tackle potential difficulties that may arise from having simultaneous tasks and to help her designers have a smoother work flow, CEO Sissy decided to employ the use of Backlog to manage the company’s projects.

“Simultaneous work requires a very smooth and clear communication flow between our teams. In order to make it work, we must find good tools or applications to manage our projects that also allows all the teams to know about the progress. We are so happy to know about Backlog because the application makes all tasks easier to manage. We will continue to have Backlog as our project management tool for Petshopbox studio” – Sissy, CEO of Petshopbox Studio
