Marian Bantjes

I have always loved unique typography so it is no surprise that I am drawn to the work of Marian Bantjes. The work featured here is her recent project for Stefan Sagmeister's “Things I have learned in my life so far” series.

Similar to the piece she made from sugar (“Indestructible”) for the Fox River Paper booklet, Marian uses sugar to script the phrase "If I want to explore a new direction professionally, it is helpful to try it out for myself first." She wrote the phrase five times, photographed it, and then destroyed it and photographed the destroyed version. Do check out her website for more images of the project. Sweet! (via Sub-studio)
