Hi, I'm Cat, the designer and owner behind Gatto.
I decided to start Gatto (which is Spanish for Cat and not anything to do with cake) in 2014 to fuel my hobbies of design and coding. My passion for design pushed my business further than I could ever have hoped and bloomed into the business I run today.
Every day, I work with amazing creatives to help them push their brand and create beautiful and functional websites and I couldn't think of anything I'd rather be doing!
Creativity has always ran through me from making pasta collages and ink printings as a small child to doing Art and Photography subjects at school. Whilst I was at university studying Maths (a bizarre choice, admittedly!), I taught myself how to code and started a side hustle creating logos and website designs.
After university I landed myself a few different full time jobs but nothing felt right and I ached to get home and work on my designs. In 2015, I decided to turn my side hustle into my full time job and jumped in head first. I instantly loved being my own boss and creating my own work load and wanted to grow my business into something that would sustain me and make me happy for the long term.
My business grew and fuelled my passion for creativity, design and working with other bosses. After spreading my services between various platforms and many different walks of life, I decided to cut down to what I truly loved to do so I can give the best that I can offer. The gatto of today is all about beautiful design and working with clients who I really connect with.
"I'M SO HAPPY WITH THE OUTCOME OF MY WEBSITE AND WOULD DEFINITELY WORK WITH CAT AGAIN FOR FUTURE PROJECTS. SHE WAS AMAZING TO WORK WITH, LOVELY AND VERY PROFESSIONAL"
