The future of visual content collaboration

Here’s why at Collato, we are all about making collaboration as joyful as gelato.

Why we started Collato

Co-founders Ivo & Sebastian met back in 2010 at Zalando, before Sebastian left to work in real estate. Although it was quite different from fashion, the two industries still had one thing in common: they were thriving on visual content.

Nothing sold without an appealing website, marketing ad or sales brochure. Frustrated by how hard it was to get visual content from initial idea to done, Sebastian & Ivo joined forces and started Collato in 2020.

Our purpose

At Collato, we believe that in a world where people and businesses think, act and operate globally it is more important than ever, to express ideas without barriers. Be it amongst each other or to a broader audience.

No matter if you are a pro or amateur, creative or non-creative, freelancer or corporation, Chinese or English speaker - visual is the only language everyone is naturally able to speak.

And this is why...

We are driven to empower the world to communicate – visually.
