Marian Bantjes - graphic designer with a concentration on typography, book setting and production. Her work includes clients such as Pentagram, Print, Wired, Stefan Sagmeister, Houghton-Mifflin and The New York Times Magazine.
Her work appealed to me due to it's intricate and decorative nature - typography can be an incredibley striking visual and I like the way Bantjes has explored this through work that not only communicates a message but creates an aesthetically beautiful piece. I think part of the success of Bantjes work lies within her ability to build the typography into the composition so it becomes a vital elements that both enhances and compliments the other elements.
Some of my favourite examples below.
