As a design agency, we specialize in strategy, product design, and branding. We see design as a tool loaded with methodology and creativity that generates innovation and value for businesses and individuals.
The founding partners are, Ana Monreal (industrial design and product development engineer, born in Ronda, Málaga) and Inés Millán (creative and branding manager, born in Jaén). Our professional journey together began in London (UK), where we had our first opportunity to work on the same project.
Until that point, we had pursued our separate careers in various fields with projects for national and international clients of diverse profiles. This time allowed us to accumulate experiences in many sectors, especially in design, branding, and product development. In 2014, we decided to return to Málaga (Andalusia) and establish the design agency ROJOmandarina.
We are your team, passionate about design, unafraid of tackling new challenges, creative, technical, and highly capable in management. We adapt to your needs, providing scalability and helping you optimize processes and manage innovation. In essence, we assist companies in growing, differentiating themselves, and acquiring a strong and sustainable business value.
