FARGO | The Television Series

Season 1 & Season 2 won over 160 award nominations including wins of Emmies and Golden Globes. Our department received an Emmy nomination for Season 2.

I was honoured with an Art Director's Guild nomination for "Contribution to Excellence in Production Design" for both Season 1 + Season 2

Season 2 | Set Design + Graphics

The Waffle Hut sign features stacks of waffles on a skewer much like Peggy (Kirsten Dunst) impales the villain on her broken windshield shards in the opening scene of Season 2.

The Waffle Hut became iconic, and was used by FX and FXX to promote the show.

Prop | Noah Hawley asked for these

"Giant Beans" for the grocery store scene. Grasshoppers crawl around these beans and the German Food on the shelves..

1/1

Prop | Noah Hawley wanted the shelves of the grocery store lined with German products - for the Grasshoppers infestation scene. It was a pun on the culture which Fargo tried to recreate.

All products are first named, and the names legally cleared. After that we design them and have them produced in multiples for the show.

Prop | Malvo buys a scanner, but not 

this pink one. That was our pun.

Malvo is played by Billy Bob Thornton
