3 Deep is a luxury branding and communications agency

Extraordinary brands for extraordinary people




The Australian Ballet was founded in 1962 and in 2012 celebrated 50 years as Australia’s best known and most successful arts organisation. At every level of the organisation, tradition and innovation go hand in hand. Luminous: Celebrating 50 Years of The Australian Ballet is an extraordinary record of the company’s first half-century, revealing dancers at work and at play, on stage and on tour, in rehearsals and in love, and the designers, directors and choreographers who nurtured its artistic vision.

3 Deep were engaged to position, conceptualise, art direct, design and produce a 360-page monograph that captured the spirit, energy and passion of one of Australia’s flagship arts companies. The book featured 273 full-page and double-page photographs, from the debut performance at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Sydney in 1962 through to the recent triumphs of the 21st century.

Luminous is an extraordinary record of the company’s first half-century.
