Matteo Gratton — Design Advocate at Sketch

Matteo is a Design Advocate at Sketch, after being VP, Experience Designer at Barclays Corporate Banking, and heading Design at Midas Consoles (Music Tribe) for 4 years. Matteo has a passion for technology and the arts, in particular music, visual arts, and literature.

He's been very interested in and working on Design Systems and has been motivated to search for new and better ways to design and develop IT projects – focusing on B2B, enterprise, and very specialized professional projects – for a while.

Matteo likes to define himself as an agnostic designer. Hates big words but has to use them as keeping everyone on the same page is key.
