Uģis Briedis - COO @ DeskTime

"Gatis is a great team player with a wide view on all things design and Ux/Ui. Always looking for new ways to improve on every detail of the products. What is even more important - Gatis never stops learning, be it the latest design trends or how to make digital products more accessible for people with disabilities. Truly a well rounded professional for a keen eye for detail and interests that reach far beyond his field of expertise."

Toms Bļodnieks - ex COO @ DeskTime

Gatis is an incredibly great team player and UX/UI designer. Gatis has so much energy to do the UX/UI design, follow and manage the projects and is great to involve team in different team building events. I trully value his knowlage in UX and UI and his passion and time he invest in the project to solve all the issues users have. Never seen such passionate colleague who is learning so much continuously and never gets tired of learning and looking for new things to improve, AB test and discuss.

Aigars Uplejs - Web Developer @ DeskTime

"Gatis is eager to learn new things and expand his knowledge beyond design. Highly recommended. From a developers point of view it helps that Gatis has general knowledge of coding and understands what can and cannot be achieved in a reasonable timeframe."
