Joseph Cross is an American concept artist and designer.

Cross was hired during the pre-production phase of Dune in 2017-2018. He collaborated with director Denis Villeneuve and production designer Patrice Vermette.

Cross' conceptual work on the film focused primarily on clothing and device designs. These included Fremen stillsuits (with the designs later elaborated by Keith Christensen), the backpack configuration of the fremkit, a Fremen stilltent that serves as a portable shelter in the deep desert, a Fremen thumper, and the external and internal designs for the binoculars used by House Atreides and the Fremen.
