As Simple As It's Get

Hello Folks,
This is not a promotion!
It's about appreciating the idea & the work of a man.
No matter whether it works by amateurs or maestro-made, 

there are ideas, time, and efforts have been wasted when making it.

Grafis Sederhana want to collect  labels that sometimes wasted and forgottenNot just who makes it or who design it, these graphical works are not fully considered tooOnce it was used then thrown to trash

In fact, these scattered graphics implied: interest, enthusiasm, habits, lifestylephilosophy, (or whatever its called) as a cultured nation.

Grafis Sederhana want to appreciate these 'simple, unique and characteristic Indonesian's graphical labels'.
