Joanna Mae Park is a much sought after Costume Designer and Art Director working in film, TV and advertising. Based in Sydney, she studied Production Design at the Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS) and has a wealth of industry experience. Joanna was Costume Designer on AACTA nominated feature film WISH YOU WERE HERE, AFI nominated feature film THE TREE and AACTA nominated short film THE TELEGRAM MAN.

Joanna loves creating imaginary worlds and using her vision to interpret scripts so that the story is able to come alive on screen. Through observation and analysis she can conceptualise the subtleties of characters’ personalities. Her costumes and environments create a history and the space for the story to unfold, gently allowing the layers of the world to come alive.
With a hawk eye for detail and an expert knowledge of both historical and contemporary styles, she has collaborated with award winning directors, actors and creative teams in both the local and international industry. She has worked on productions as diverse as Hollywood films, an NBC TV series, pop music videos, tight-deadline commercials and independent shorts.
Recent credits include Costume Design for feature film FELONY (dir. Matthew Saville, starring Joel Edgerton) that screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival; feature film ADORATION (dir. Anne Fontaine, starring Naomi Watts and Robin Wright) that had its world premiere at Sundance in 2013; US TV series CAMP.
