DESIGNING THE NARRATIVE
ARDA Studio specializes in creative concepts, narrative and production design for live entertainment, events, broadcast and film. ARDA is comprised of Anita La Scala, Rob Bissinger, and an ever-evolving team of highly skilled hand and digital artists. Whether a world broadcast spectacle or an immersive entertainment experience, ARDA challenges conventional design, resources, and technology working closely with collaborators to bring innovative design to the global entertainment industry.
Their designs have been seen by millions of people worldwide, most recently for Magic Mike Live at the Club Theatre in Berlin, and the Hippodrome Casino in London. Prior to forming ARDA Studio, Anita and Rob contributed their expertise to the Emmy nominated creative team of the 2015 Baku Opening Ceremony to provide conceptual exploration, along with design and movement studies. They also led the production design team of the 2014 Sochi Olympic Opening Ceremony, earning them an Emmy nomination for Art Direction. Their design for the 2015 Pan American Games Closing Ceremony in Toronto, Canada hosted a colorful celebration of athletic achievement and cultural diversity and set the stage for the talents of Serena Ryder, Pitbull and Kanye West.
"Our goal is to create visually stunning, dynamic and ambitious experiences. We look to expand and define the story narrative while paying meticulous attention to the details. With a deep love for the art and a genuine approach to every project, we value above all else, creative collaboration. "
