Art direction and graphic design for a series of calendars celebrating the 200-year anniversary of the birth of Jenny Lind, also known as the Swedish nightingale, who became Sweden's first world celebrity. 

A jubilee concert and an exclusive exhibition including photos, drawings, texts and dresses were held at the Royal Swedish Opera as part of the celebration in October 2020.

This project was developed during my studies in graphic design and typography at Linnaeus University, Sweden.

Jenny Lind was born in Stockholm in 1820. She started her career at the Dramaten's student school and broke through internationally at a time when the focus increasingly revolved around the individual, which meant that her star status grew to enormous proportions.
