Katabatic Design was founded in Australia by Kathy (Kat) Patterson. Kat provides services online and via email, regardless of your location.
Kat is married with two children and enjoys surfing, kiteboarding, and snowboarding overseas with her family when she's not in the office. Kat has also competed at national and international levels in hang gliding, winning many trophies and championships. She also has a husband who is a pilot.​​​​​​​
The name Katabatic refers to air currents and wind flowing downhill during the evening when it becomes cooler. It relates to nature's elements, as they adjust to match the environment, just as design changes to reflect the times and trends.
