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".cite podcast|title=PotterCast 131: Rowling Along|host=Anelli, Melissa, John Noe, Sue Upton|url=http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3?http://media.libsyn.com/media/pottercast/pc071223.mp3|date=2007-12-23|accessdate=2008-01-21|publisher=PotterCast]

He has been nominated for an Academy Award eight times, and has won three times: in 1983 for "Gandhi", in 1989 for "Dangerous Liaisons", and in 1996 for "The English Patient". He has been nominated for a BAFTA award twelve times, including for all the "Potter" films, and has won twice: in 1981 for "The Elephant Man" and in 2005 for "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire".cite web|url=http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0186023/awards|title=Awards for Stuart Craig|publisher=IMDb|accessdate=2008-01-21]
