Adobe Presents Design Matters Live

Typography by Marian Bantjes

This is a video of world-renowned designer, illustrator and typographer Marian Bantjes during her appearance at the recent Design Matters Live event presented by Adobe and the San Francisco Chapter of the AIGA in September.

Marian shares her love for the design community and the importance of staying connected, even while working from her idyllic rural home studio. She speaks about her transition from a more traditional design career path to a much more personally fulfilling mix of work. Marian has an obvious love for what she does, sharing some of the inspiration for her recent projects as diverse as hand-drawn valentines to the type treatment for the "Want It!" campaign at Saks Fifth Avenue. Marian's insights in this portrait are important for anyone who cares passionately about design and respects the craft of the artist. The video can be found here.
