Norman Stuart Craig OBE (born April 14, 1942) is a noted British production designer. He has also designed the sets, together with his frequent collaborator set decorator Stephanie McMillan, on all of the Harry Potter film series films to date. At Potter author J. K. Rowling's request, he is working with Universal Creative team to design the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal's Islands of Adventure theme park. Rowling said in a December 2007 interview on the Potter podcast PotterCast, "The key thing for me was that, if there was to be a theme park, that Stuart Craig … would be involved. … More than involved, that he would pretty much design it. Because I love the look of the films; they really mirror what’s been in my imagination for all these years". He has been nominated for an Academy Award nine times, and has won three times: in 1982 for Gandhi, in 1988 for Dangerous Liaisons, and in 1996 for The English Patient.
