Annie Atkins

Graphic Designer for Film

Annie Atkins is the world’s leading voice in film graphic design, having created graphic props and set pieces for multiple Oscar-nominated-and-winning movies such as Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel, Isle of Dogs, and French Dispatch, Spielberg’s Bridge of Spies and West Side Story, and the map for the latest Indiana Jones movie, The Dial of Destiny. Her book, Fake Love Letters, Forged Telegrams, and Prison Escape Maps, was published by Phaidon and drew critical acclaim as a look behind-the-curtain of film design, winning accolades from Jeff Goldblum (“Annie makes the unreal seem hyperreal, and the real more supremely alive and utterly magical…”), The Observer (“a love letter to the magic of movie-making”), and Esquire (“a riveting, behind-the-scenes look into the ultra-detailed process of creating passports, street signs, tea stains, and hundreds of other on-screen ephemera”).
