received from mudac, Lausanne

Invitation card

Carte blanche to graphic designer Marian Bantjes

Musee de design et d'arts appliques contemporains mudac
Pl Cathedrale 6, Lausanne, Switzerland

From July 2, 2014 to October 5, 2014

Marian Bantjes is a graphic designer, typographer, illustrator and blogger. Working from a small island near Vancouver, Canada, she has developed a very personal graphical style combining natural materials such as flowers, pasta and sugar with the most advanced computer techniques. Her work, a mixture of tradition, style and technology, is highly unusual and personal, distancing itself from international utilitarian graphic design through its treatment of unfamiliar, generally non-commercial subjects, strongly influenced by contemporary experimental graphic design.

Her creations have featured in the specialist press around the world, and she has worked with some of the top designers of our time. For her carte blanche at the mudac, she has chosen to transform two of the museum's spaces into a graphical cabinet of curiosities. She will present some of the objects that inspire her as well as a selection of her recent work, all referenced in Pretty Pictures, published by Thames & Hudson (2013). She will also be showing a new piece specially designed for the exhibition.
