They are famous and busy and you have no other opportunity to contact to them. Being involved in the idea, they gave us their recommendations and made us job offers. It was an immediate effect!

Result - Sir John Hegarty, Jeff Goodby and creative gurus from all over the world gave us their recommendations; - about 100 professional magazines wrote about the project; - 30 000 views of the video; - 1000 visitors on www.dmitryandoleg.com every day; - 24 job offers.
