I met Sara Jansen and Emily Mott while we were all dancing at the Richmond Ballet as trainees. Sara and Emily co-direct the Charlottesville Ballet and recently opened the Charlottesville Ballet Academy. They contacted me to give them an updated, elegant look to celebrate the new school. Incorporated into the mark is movement, pointe shoe ribbons, and the initials of the company. It serves as the unifying mark between the professional company and the academy.
Before designing their logo and stationary, I enjoyed photographing many of their performances in Charlottesville, shown below.
