Who we are

Producing Paradise is run by three ladies of digital producer ilk: Jess Allison, Aimee Cowie and Lilith Palmer. We’re digital ninjas, creative problem solvers, and organised as hell. Read our mission statement here.

We all worked in the same role at the same company at different times, but have since moved on to new work-homes. We’ve continued to share thoughts and tips with each other over the years… and now with you!

​🐿 Jess Allison

Jess Allison

📍Location: Melbourne, Australia

⭐️ Personality type: CONSUL (ESFJ-A)

☕️ Coffee order: Filter coffee or an oat latte, mood-dependent. 

🐿 Spirit animal: Squirrel

🎶 Guilty pleasure: Listening to Justin Bieber’s “Sorry”. On repeat. 

Jess’ backstory: After finishing uni in 2005, I started working in real estate ad bookings. I quickly moved to a media production house where I discovered my love of all things digital and a panache for project management. There was a brief foray into account management for a graphic design studio, then I spent 10 years managing digital projects for various small studios, including five years, running my own business: providing project management support for a collective of web designers and developers. I had a short stint in fintech, working on a retirement goal-setting app. In 2018 I joined a strategic design company, shaping the delivery practice and eventually becoming the Delivery Director, before finally taking a sidestep into the People and Operations Director role in 2023.

☕️ Coffee order: I only drink coffee on occasion. So I’ll pick a black tea –Dilmah– with a dash of milk.

Aimee’s backstory: I’ve been involved in the digital world in some capacity since finishing high school in 2006. My first taste was working for a digital printing company before I studied Digital Media. After graduating (from my very broad course) I started working for an independent video production company, before moving to software development doing front-end web development and later client services. After moving cities –and realising I’d found my niche– I’ve been working as a digital producer ever since.
