Lisa Cookson

Art Department Assistant, Graphic Designer, Props Buyer

Career Summary

I've been working in the film & TV industry for the last 5 years specialising in Graphic Design while also Props Buying and assisting the Art Department.

Coming from a commercial background in Graphic Design, I’ve had experience creating branding, packaging, campaigns, signage, digital graphics, apparel, art directing, installations and everything in between.

Equipped with period knowledge & a love for genre, I thrive on the small details that make convincing worlds -- whether it be for a character's story or a town's history!

I’m currently based in Melbourne (sometimes in Sydney) and am very happy to travel for a project.
