Founded by Rafa Prada and Rosa Beiroa, Made Abroad officially became a creative studio in 2017, however, Rafa and Rosa have worked together in the creative industry almost since they met in 2005.
They created Made Abroad to be able to accommodate bigger projects, commissions and expand their circle of collaborators to cope with the FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) for interesting projects and great collaborations.
Made Abroad is a place of continuous re-invention, where we are always open to new challenges and media. We love bringing people together and creating unique and meaningful products.
The work you can see here has been produce sometimes by us and other times in collaboration with our network of creatives.
Rosa is an award-winning filmmaker and artist and she is the person behind the animation and illustration work at Made Abroad.
With a fascination for drawing, the body and movement, she also loves to explore alternative ways of storytelling.
Currently directing and animating her new film Carmeline, she recently run the session Drawing & Collaboration for MA Animation at the University of the Arts and was a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Seville for ‘Microworkshops for a Digital Image Generation’. In addition, she was a panellist for the Screen School Showcase at Aesthetica Film Festival 2018 and a guest speaker at Graduate Series Spotlight: Moving Image and Digital Arts at the London College of Communication in 2019.
She often runs workshops bringing drawing to people of different age groups and backgrounds.
Rafa has large experience working with global brands in different industries, but most importantly, a wide knowledge of system thinking and how to shape technical and creative solution for digital environments. He believes in richer outcomes with inclusive design and cross-disciplinary teams.
Rafa's key strengh is his capacity to converge abstract thinking into unique ideas for clients.
He recently launched yourdigitalrights.org, a service for people to exercise GDPR and CCPA rights, because privacy matters and that exercising your right to privacy should be easy.
