Artist and typographer Marian Bantjes will be the Alaska Design Forum's next featured speaker in their 2009-2010 season, Latitude. The designer, who focuses on vector art and custom typography, will speak at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 13, at the Back Room at the Silverbow.
Working from her base on a small island off the west coast of Canada, Bantjes' graphic work has brought her international recognition. Following her interests in complexity and structure, Marian is known for her custom typography, detailed and precise vector art, obsessive hand work, patterning and ornament.
Bantjes' 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 (Smithsonian) in New York. In 2008, she was accepted as a member of the prestigious international design organization, Alliance Graphique Internationale (agi).
