My name is Frida Rivera Oliva and I’m a independent production designer and art director living in Los Angeles. With a fresh and innovative approach and a multidisciplinary background, I bring solutions where function and aesthetics come together seamlessly. I’ve worked in a wide range of areas: from designing concepts and spaces to generating visual stories to be told on film. I’m looking to grow with a group of talented and creative people. Willing to travel. Bilingual.
