ABOUT

Hello and welcome! I'm Lisa and I am a Multi-Disciplinary Designer, specialising in Graphics and Design for real life and for the screen. I craft visual stories for narrative, pitching, branding and marketing.

I’ve worked with and collaborated with production companies including: Mushroom Pictures, Dr D Studios, RKPix, Common Language Films and Midnight Snack Productions.

Most recently I've worked with some pretty amazing people creating: key art for the award winning multi-platform drama 'Starting From Now', graphics and props for the new Thundamentals Music Video 'Never say Never’ and title design for RKpix & Screen Australia's 'Lets See How Fast This Baby Will Go'.

I do have a particular fondness for the genre and period project variety and in 2015, I was lucky enough to be the Design Director for the science fiction pilot - 'Restoration'. Steering the design and look of the film, from concept development through to Production, Visual Effects, Graphics and Marketing - including the theatrical poster / key art. 'Restoration' had it's Australian premiere on the Nine Network and is currently available to watch on Virgin Domestic and International flights & Australia's wonderful streaming service Stan.

Fascinated by visual storytelling, I love being apart of building worlds -- whether it's doing so in the Art Department, a design team or autonomously -- it’s what gets my creative spark, sparking! It sparks brightest when I'm creating graphic props from the past (or future!), sourcing props - from any era or over seeing and steering the design. I want to be involved in the design and making of key props for an array of different stories and worlds!
