Marian Bantjes

Marian Bantjes is an amazing Canadian typographer with a beautiful body of work. One recent project that caught my eye is her contribution to Stefan Sagmeister's “Things I have learned in my life so far” series. Marian used sugar to script the phrase "If I want to explore a new direction professionally, it is helpful to try it out for myself first." Writing out the phrase five times, she photographed each version, as well as the destroyed version. Check out her website for more images of the project.
