Bhuana Ilmu Populer (BIP) under the Gramedia Group, is one of the biggest publishing companies in Indonesia. The company focuses on the children books and wants to expand their business by publishing geospatial products such as world map and travel guidance map. As the publishing industry has grown rapidly, the company needs to follow the trend and promote their products better through a fine looking website.

We redesigned the company website in order to attract more readers, capture email subscribers and increase product sales. The website is a representative display of the company products with its interesting contents and the variety of published book. The application provides complete information about books particularly children books.
