Oficina das Palavras was founded in 2006, from the union of forces and complementation of different skills of journalists Ana Paula Ruschel and Ricardo Ruas, professionals with extensive experience and who think outside the box.
Together they made a difference and today Oficina das Palavras is a solid press and content advisory company, which has opened the market and is maintained thanks to the constant updating and search for news.
We serve local to global customers, with regionalized and international work with our own team in Portugal and Canada.
