Ram Castillo

International Speaking Tour: Ram Castillo


Do you want to be a designer? Why is design such a seductive career path?

Perhaps at the heart is the sense of 'newness'. The idea of exploring, deconstructing and re-inventing taps into our need to contribute, connect and grow. Plus, the ability to influence human behaviour and solve problems creatively while getting paid for it, is indeed pretty cool. So are people born to be designers? Ram Castillo dives into the fine details of what it takes to get a job as a designer, propelling you into a lifestyle that ticks all the boxes.


Ram is an award winning Senior Designer, Art Director, Blogger and Author of the internationally industry acclaimed book 'How to get a job as a designer, guaranteed', based in Sydney, Australia.

In 2012, Ram started the blog giantthinkers.com which helps thousands of design students and graduates be employed. He's since been featured in Communication Arts and HOW magazine. After over 10 years experience working for globally renowned agencies such as Ogilvy & Mather, DDB and McCann Worldgroup on clients including Audi, Qantas, Coca-Cola and The Louis Vuitton Group, he's able to give back to the industry which has given him avalanches in return.
