My course at Berghs began this week, and I am very excited about my collaborators for the next few weeks. Meet my team:

Do Good with Ramiro Oblitas

After spending 15 years building global brands and working with the best creative talent in the world, they made a decision; they only want to work with clients who have the same values as them – uncompromising quality, attention to detail and determination – no matter what their size.
In fact, they prefer working with small-scale, big-hearted hopefuls like themselves.
