In November 2019, Scottish Ballet launched its full 2020 season, three iconic yet very different productions – Swan Lake, The Scandal at Mayerling and The Nutcracker

As senior designer of the graphic design team at Scottish Ballet, my challenge was to create a look that represented the unique qualities of each production, whilst remaining true to Scottish Ballet's overarching brand. 
Stripped-down, sleek and stylish, David Dawson's Swan Lake is the classic retold for a new generation.
A true story of death, desire and destruction, Mayerling sweeps us on an emotional rollercoaster through the Hapsburg court of the late 19th century.
The Nutcracker is a magical family adventure. Costumes plucked from the most gorgeous chocolate box and a story lifted straight from the pages of a classic fairy tale.
