About us

Prood (profesionals of design) is our little design studio. I’m Rodrigo Barona and since I founded it, about 5 years ago, we dedicate our time to create good ideas for clients who look for a sucessfull image.

We work with graphics and Websites and most of all we really enjoy what we do!. The team work, good atmosphere at the studio and expertise are the  3 ideas that run into my head when I think about this little company that I lead.

About me

Rodrigo Barona OlieteMy name is Rodrigo Barona, I was born in Valência (Spain) and in my early years my interest to “create cool solutions” was obvious.

I must confess that being a designer was not my first option… the real truth is that I want to be a carpenter, but because of my terrible allergy to dust I had to give up after 3 weeks in a carpintery when I was 16.

After that I decided I could also enjoy being a designer so in 1996 I took the Industrial Design career at the University (Universidad Cardenal Herrera CEU) of Valência. And then I developed a big passion with Multimedia stuff and Graphic Design so I decided to take the Master in Escola Elisava in Barcelona.

During my stay in Barcelona I had the chance to work as Web developer and Graphic designer with CSS Web Group where we made projects to several entities as Pricewaterhouse Coopers Consulting, Amena and Ayuntamiento de Barcelona.

Later I was invited to work with GEC (Grupo UOC) to develop some e-learning projects to “la Caixa” , Generalitat de Catalunya, and Gás Natural.

When in 2003 I decided to come back to Valência I created my own studio where I work until today as a freelancer and in a patnership with some agencies as Ogilvy or Publips Group.
