Each year The Hong Kong Ballet holds a very special charity benefit performance of The Nutcracker. This year Whitespace donated our creative services and designed the programs, backdrops and materials for the show, under a theme centered around The Kingdom of Toys. Our team worked closely with the benefit committee to create over 40 different pieces of collaterals and artworks used throughout the day's event, which took place in the mezzanine foyer of the Cultural Center before guests attending the fundraiser watch the performance of the Nutcracker in the auditorium. Ashley Tse of The Hong Kong Ballet wrote to us, "Thank you very much to you and your colleagues’ professional and graceful efforts throughout the lead up to the event. The Nutcracker Christmas Benefit 2010 was a great success. All the children and our guests had a joyful time."
We were delighted that our graphics, inspired by the wonderful Nordic designs of Sanna Annukka were appreciated by those that attended, and provided a colorful backdrop to the little ballerinas and dancers that graced the stage that day. Special thanks to our team Veronique Hon and Rosalie Lo who worked with a pre-holiday rush deadline to make this happen!
Over 20 pieces of signages were designed and placed around The Cultural Centre, where the Christmas benefit was held.

Little booths for children to play games were created, such as this one, Hit The Hat Off The Snowman.
