Tud Dret = 
It’s all good

A Cape Verdean philosophy of life that combines creativity with positivity.

Our goal is to turn that mindset into a creative social platform, born to support and tell real stories, of real people, solving real problems.

One problem at a time, one story at a time

Roger — Founder

Born in Mozambique but raised in the Azores Islands, I'm a director, photographer and creative working in the advertising industry since 1996. My work emerges from a blend of cultures, most notably surfing, travelling and creativity. From seascapes to cityscapes, what truly drives me is people and capturing their amazing stories.

André — Founder

Lisbon born, but London adopted, I’m a Creative Director with over 15 years of experience, working for some of the world’s biggest and most innovative brands, from Sony to Skype. Recently, I helped Chivas Regal launch a global platform to mentor and fund upcoming Social-Entrepreneurs – an experience that inspired me to start this project.

Dany — Founder

I’m a creative with roots in Sweden and Cape Verde, who has gone from design, to web, to film making. With an aim to always explore new areas of creativity and further the visual consciousness of the people of Cape Verde. Apart from trying to make things look good, I surf, help my community whenever I can, and raise three kids along the way.

Johan — Founder

I’m a Cape Verdean/Swedish Creative Technologist working at Adobe Systems Nordic. An award-winning social and technology entrepreneur, I’m passionate about mixing technology with business. My number one call in life is to break down barriers in society by spreading creativity and digital knowledge to the community.
