Toni Barton’s design career had an eclectic start on both coasts: designing scenery for both theatre + short films while studying architecture in Los Angeles; assisting several Broadway scenic designers; and designing at a themed architecture + an industrial set design firm in New York. Each of these experiences lead to her transition into design for film + television.
Toni’s design strategy fosters a collaborative environment for the written word. She recently production designed Netflix’s ARCHIVE 81, a series based on a supernatural horror podcast. Over the past few years, she designed season one of the ABC legal drama FOR LIFE, the pilot episode of ABC’s STUMPTOWN and the last season of Marvel’s JESSICA JONES. Previously, Toni worked for many years as an art director and as an adjunct professor at NYU.
