The Team behind the Project

What started as a group of 3 friends has now grown to a full-time team of 6 persons working on Fort Gotten. Here you will find more information about each of us.

The First Kidz: Founders

We are a small group of friends who are truly passionate about crypto and the creative world. We have been developing creative projects together for many years now... merch, prints, art-toys, you name it. As we found the world of NFTs and became more and more involved in it, it was the perfect fit to create something truly unique.

The way we do our projects is deeply collaborative, with a shared vision and direction. While we all do different things, almost everything we do has direct input of each other, and most of the ideas are bounced around until we come up with something we are truly happy with.

Sam Portillo

With a background in design and art, he is always dreaming of characters and scenery, and transforming them into amazing and creative universes.

In this project, he’s the main artist, the one who’s actually translating the ideas to digital (and physical) pieces of art.

Roberto Burgos

With a background in filmmaking and production, Toto is the one transforming the vision into an actual concrete project.

Toto also loves getting his hands dirty with a bit of everything, so he’s also helping with the community, some behind the scenes techy stuff, and much more.

Carlos Arnecke

With a background in marketing and digital communications, I’m the one writing and creating all this “marketing” stuff up.

Aside from copywriting and some creative storytelling here and there, I’m also the one who’s behind this website and some other digital stuff.
