Melinda Doring is an Australian production designer and former costume designer. She has won the AACTA Award for Best Production Design four times and been nominated twice more.

CareerEdit

In reviews of Home Song Stories (2007), Variety called the production "ace",[1] and The Hollywood Reporter described it as "first-rate".[2] In an otherwise mixed review, The Sydney Morning Herald praised Doring's production design in Triangle (2009).[3] The Hollywood Reporter wrote that her production design in The Eye of the Storm "evokes a world of chauffeured Bentleys and kangaroo-fur stoles inhabited by a wannabe colonial aristocracy".[4]
