Marian Bantjes

Posted by Scott

Marian Bantjes is one of those designers whose work I’ve seen often but never put it all together as being from the same artist. Browsing her very deep portfolio you’ll find everything from high school savant ballpoint pen drawings to hyper-maximalist pattern collages. Everything in it is overflowing with passion and Marian’s unwavering reverence for detail is truly something beautiful. Check out her portfolio for more. Also check out Marian’s TED talk (via Leigh)

Via @Nopattern, which is perfect because it’s interesting to note the overlaps between some of their word art.

I just discovered Marian Bantjes when I saw her TED talk and have been obsessed with her work and design philosophy since. Love her.

In reference to Marian’s talk on TED, I think the whole idea of not suppressing your voice (ego) when creating graphic designs is interesting. It’s a discussion that I’ve yet to hear a good answer for. Personally, I think the more a designer shows their voice the more they cross over to art and illustration, maybe not? Either way, Marian Bantjes work is captivating.
