Heard around the design community from Rod’s peers and clients
I come from three generations of designers, I run Henry Roth and Michelle Roth design studios in both NYC and Sydney, Australia. I am also the Mentor of ‘Project Runway Australia.’ Frankly speaking, Rod is your man in the world of design. Period. No one I have met in my 30 years of design has the connections, the knowledge, the experience, the network, the professionalism, or the tenacity to truly help, coach and advise creative talent to pursue success across the board. He’s a true expert in his field.

“Rod Berg was instrumental in developing my career. From resume and portfolio review to his wealth of contacts in the industry, he consistently presented great opportunities to me. He is proactive, innovative and has a great understanding of positions that would be a good fit.”
“I interviewed at both Sephora and Carnegie Hall this week. I got the job at Sephora and I accepted their offer. I wanted to thank you for being so incredibly helpful, I really appreciate it. I'm going to go celebrate!”
“Hey, Rod. So they called me and offered me the position and I said, ‘I ACCEPT!!!’ He goes, ‘wait and hear about it before you accept’ and I said, ‘I ACCEPT!!’ It was funny. Thank you so much for your help. I am sooooo grateful!! So. THANK YOU.”
"I have known Rod for more than a few years—in fact, Rod is one of the reasons I was asked to join the Adjunct Staff at Parsons a few years ago. Rod has always been a very solid resource for young, talented designers. In the realm of coaching, Rod seems to really be on his game."
Parsons the New School for Design
"During my time at Parsons, Rod was an invaluable asset to the students in the Communication Design department and to me as Chair. After I left Parsons, I witnessed his expertise and effectiveness from the other side. He's calm, clear-headed, intelligent, and most talented. I recommend him wholeheartedly."

“Rod is my DESIGN ANGEL! Before I met him I was very frustrated and upset with my own job search and had been unsuccessfully trying to find a job for a few years. It is indescribable how much he assisted me, with my resume, with my confidence and coaching me on all aspects of the process. I would not be here if not for his patience and assistance. For that, I give thanks.”

“I just received a great phone call from Target! They have extended an offer for me to join their design team as an assistant textile designer in the women's lingerie/hosiery department! It’s amazing to think about how much I have learned from your guidance, connections and portfolio feedback! Thank you so much for all of your help.”
“A few years after graduation, I went to Rod seeking advice on new opportunities in the field. When I met with him, not only did he understand exactly what I was looking for, but he also knew where and how to find it. His guidance has been an invaluable resource for helping me fulfill my professional aspirations."

"Rod helped to place me in a junior designer position. He really listened and took an interest in my portfolio, my growth in my career, and my long-term goals, and helped find a job that was best for me. Over the years, he has kept me in mind for new positions that might be good fits for me. He was a pleasure to work with and a great resource, I plan to work with him again when I'm ready to move on."
“I just wanted to let you know that I accepted a position at Calvin Klein as a Graphic Designer. So thank you, thank you, thank you for everything... none of it would be possible without your help!!!”
