Each year Chatsworth House is transformed into an enchanted place, leading vistiors on a themed trail for the festive season. For the Christmas 2016 trail, the house lead visitors along a trail that told 'The nutcracker' story. I was commissioned to illustrate and design the trail leaflets which would appeal to children and give them things to look out for as they visited each room in the house. This year the specifications were A4 double sided leaflets which needed to include text for each room. Once I had received the finalised text, I illustrated a rough draft based upon the characters and objects in the story. Once approved, I created the individual illustrations and completed the layout in InDesign.
