Creative Lives — Production designer Anna Rhodes

Posted 08 March 2017 Interview by Laura Snoad

As a freelance production designer, Anna Rhodes transforms the imaginative world inside a director’s head into a real-life environment. From creating tropical paradises in the Mexican jungle to morphing a London apartment into a Parisian Novelle Vague haunt, Anna defines the look and feel of a set, designs the space and sources the perfect props. She didn't know much about production design at university, but a chance job choreographing a Laura Marling video put her in touch with a pro, who she went on to assist. Now her clients include Kanye West, Kylie Minogue, Agent Provocateur and iconic director Steve McQueen.
