Marion Banjtes is hardly a household name but she is fast becoming one of the most sought after designers. Her style is eclectic, original and very personal and it’s a far cry from the style of our traditional design heroes like Paul Rand and Milton Glaser.
Here is a short introduction from Observer Media:
Marian Bantjes is a typographer, designer, artist and writer. Working from a small island off the west coast of Canada, her personal and obsessive work has brought her international recognition. Her work has been published in books and magazines around the world and is included in the permanent collection of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.
And here is a link to the video presentation she gave at TED2010: Bantjes, M. (Feb 2010). Marion Bantjes: Intricate beauty by design. http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/marian_bantjes_intricate_beauty_by_design.html, January 2, 2011.
