Watch ‘The Birth Of A Designer’ talk for free: FULL VIDEO HERE

On the 27th of August, 2015 I delivered a talk titled ‘The Birth Of A Designer’ at deFrost* in the studio of Frost* Collective, Surry Hills – NSW, Australia. This is the same talk I delivered during my USA speaking tour over November, December and January 2014/15 where I visited 22 cities during those 3 months.

If you missed the deFrost* talk or you missed my talk during my tour in the United States where I engaged with over 10,000 people, the wait is over. It’s finally up for you to watch for free right now.

I’d also like to let you know that it’s important for me to ensure that any content I provide for free on Giant Thinkers, I endeavour for that to be better than any paid content you can get elsewhere. And, any paid content I have available, I endeavour for that to be the best in the market, globally.

I recommend you grab a cuppa, some snacks and soak in this 40 minute talk to immerse in the experience!


Here’s a little blurb about the talk:

“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. On top of that, 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? During this deFrost* Ram Castillo of Giant Thinkers 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.”


For any questions, thoughts or comments, I’d love to hear from you below. Alternatively, i’m super active on instagram, twitter and periscope – my handle is @TheGiantThinker and of course reaching me on is also welcomed.

    I just watched this talk and I have to say it is really inspiring! I’m really glad that this was put up online because when I had originally heard about this talk I found out it was in Australia….and coming all the way from Cape Cod, Massachusetts it didn’t seem like I could get access to it! Really great stuff to hear and it is certainly keeping me inspired going forward as I enter the design world!

      That’s awesome Isaac, I appreciate you and value your comment on here. It makes me happy to hear that though you’re all the way over there in Massachusetts, the content of my talk has delivered inspiration to you. This is the talk I did during my last USA speaking tour! 🙂 Also, have you been tuning into my podcast my friend?
