Marian Bantjes

I had a look at Mariam Bantjes’ work.

I found her designs very interesting. They seem very thought through. They might seem a bit busy at first, but the use of delicate line drawing prevents it from looking too busy and heavy.

I like the way you do not see everything at first glance and you have to look into the image to discover new elements like text that looks like a maze of lines at first.

I find her way of incorporating text very playful and how space around the words demonstrates what is written and how they complement each other.

She seems to have a great eye for detail and the use of natural handwriting adds to the stylish and elegant feel of her illustrations.
