Marian Bantjes – Graphic Designer.
I came across this film while looking up training videos on my new friend Lynda.com. Not only does Lynda have a wealth of tutorials on anything from Photoshop to Twitter, it also has the odd documentary, such as this one that I found on famed graphic designer, Marian Banjes. This was the first time that I had heard of her and her beautiful design work. I really enjoyed this truly insightful film, which showed us Marian’s highly original and intricate design, as well as her hand-crafted and decorative lettering/typefaces. I also enjoyed seeing designers that we have come to know as a result of our VisCom course, and familiar faces from the film Helvetica, namely Michael Beirut and Paula Scher.
