About PT. Aseli DAGADU Djokdja

Dagadu Djokdja was created on January 9 1994, from a collaboration of 25 students, mostly studying Architecture at UGM and who had a common interest in the field of tourism, urban and of course graphic design. They agreed to establish PT. Aseli Dagadu Djokdja (PT. ADD) and make Jogja the source of inspiration. As a result, Dagadu Djokdja is always in great demand both by travellers, as well as the alumni of the city of Yogyakarta.

Dagadu Djokdja,  initially positioned as a ‘souvenir’ of Jogja,  was elevated to ‘tandabaca’ of Jogja. As a creative company, PT. ADD originally knew only how to produce souvenirs, but it developed its own vision of a creative and active role by maintaining, fostering and nurturing particularly the creative habitat Jogja and Indonesia in general;  Participating actively in prestigious creative events such as Ngayogjazz, Biennale, FKY, Pinasthika and others.
