The graphic art of Marian Bantjes

I’ve been meaning to post about Canadian graphic artist, Marian Bantjes, for a long while now.  I saw her in the Rebel Design series on Ted Talks and fell in love with her work.  Hearing her talk and seeing her work made me miss the PRINT subscription that we had at Pagano Schenck & Kay which I now see is available on the iPad. Must get an iPad.

Anyway, back to Marian Bantjes — her work is so inspired and unique.  Much of it is typography driven. You can see her calligraphic roots in her work.  And her Valentine cards are some of my favorite and inspires me to keep up the doodling I do that my colleagues make so much fun of me for.  I want to start making individual Valentine cards myself after hearing her talk about the experience.  (Marian made 150 unique cards to send out in 2010– I think I’ll stick with 5-10).

Please check out her website and prepare to be inspired!
