With their innovative outlook on art, film, and photography, Hunter & Gatti have established themselves as an internationally recognized creative duo within the fashion and art world, expanding effortlessly from their headquarters in Barcelona to New York City.
The founders and artistic minds behind Hunter & Gatti, Cristian Borillo and Martin Cespedes, have worked alongside one another for over a decade. Working as art directors, they have successfully produced numerous campaigns for fashion brands such as Burberry and Diesel.

Thus, Hunter & Gatti was born. Hunter & Gatti immerse themselves in all aspects of development including creative initiatives, art direction, and photography; ultimately creating a holistic image for each individual brand. Their constant need to revitalize outlooks and perspectives on the world is what keeps their creativity flowing, giving them immense success within both the art and fashion arena.
