"Joseph is the most out-of-the-box guy ever."

Howard Berger[[source]]

Joseph Porro is a costume designer and artist who helped draw multiple costumes and characters used in The Orville.


The OrvilleEdit

Porro described his work methodology: "The way to do it is the way you approach a period show, but you ask, ‘What’s the planet? What’s the planet surface like? What is this alien culture like?’ It’s nonstop sketches.'"[1]

He finds more unusual costumes easier to design, while the Planetary Union's uniforms are very difficult and subject to constant revisions between seasons.[2]


  • Both he and makeup artist Howard Berger got their first job on the same show: Neon Unmaniacs.[2]
