Joseph Cross is a New Zealand concept artist and designer who works for Weta Workshop.

Middleton was hired during the pre-production phase of Dune. He collaborated with director Denis Villeneuve and production designer Patrice Vermette. This was their second collaboration, after Middleton did concept art for Blade Runner 2049 a few years prior.

Cross' conceptual work on the film focused on developing a few of the clothing designs seen in the completed film. These included the outdoor clothing of the Fremen and non-Fremen citizens of Arrakeen, as well as the domestic sleepwear clothing of Paul and Jessica, which they wear on the night of their kidnapping and the following day.
