Glyndebourne 'Nothing'

BRIEF
Design and produce the marketing campaign hero image and programme for Glyndebourne's 2016 production of Nothing - a new youth opera based on the award-winning novel by Janne Teller.

CHALLENGE
"If someone you knew declared that life had no meaning, how would you convince them it does? That’s the question a group of teenagers ask themselves in Nothing". The campaign required that the central motifs and nihilistic questions of the libretto be brought to life for both a young and an adult audience.

OUTCOME
Typography and photography were combined to create a bold campaign image and striking programme booklet to bring to life to the opera's big questions with colour and impact.
