ABOUT







Marian Bantjes

Bowen Island, BC-based very talented graphic artist, who specializes in custom type and ornaments. Her typographic work:

  • With W. Ross Mills at Tiro, she designed Restraint (2007), an ornamental typeface, announced here and here (a bit of simulated Indic). Restraint won an award at TDC2 2008.
  • She designed titling caps for Thirstype's Playground. Quoting designers from a TDC jury page, Stefan Sagmeister says she is one of the most innovative typographers working today, Noreen Morioka calls her the Doyald Young of her generation, and Sigrid Albert says [she creates] spiritual typography which goes beyond religion.
  • Love Letters are calligraphic pieces drawn by Bantjes in 2008.
  • HWT Bernice (2016, P22 and Hamilton Wood Type). P22 writes: HWT Bernice is an ornament font system designed by Marian Bantjes. The basic shapes were designed by Bantjes for the Hamilton Wood Type Museum's border stamping machine as a contemporary application for this 150 year old machine, which punches shapes into end grain wood to form continuous border patterns.

She teaches typography through Emily Carr Institute in Vancouver, BC. Speaker at ATypI 2010 in Dublin.
