Felice Della Gatta

Benvenuto a Hectic Podcast! This week we welcome Felice Della Gatta, an Italian globetrotter and self-taught designer who joins us as Hectic’s Head of Brand and Creative Director. From his start as a high school dropout to his current status as a global, high-demand designer, learn how Felice built his freelancing career through both successes and failures. We’ll also explore the importance of compromises and how he inspired Hectic’s commitment to daily gratitude.

As someone who works from whichever country he chooses to visit at that moment, Head of Brand and Creative Director Felice Della Gatta lives the freelancer dream. Listen this week as we learn how he balances travel and work without breaking his professional commitments. You’ll hear why Felice always bites off more than he can chew — and why you should do the same.

Oh, and if you love the stunning hummingbird that graces the Hectic brand as much as we do, you won’t want to miss his part in designing this image and the Hectic name.
