Marian Bantjes, my former boss, has just had 4 pieces accepted by the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, in the US. Congratulations, Marian!
Here are the 4 pieces, along with the notes that Marian sent out:
- The Design Matters Live poster, which I designed with love for Debbie Millman’s AIGA/Adobe-sponsored live version of her great, great show, Design Matters.
- The Fox River Paper booklet which was designed by Rick Valicenti and Gina Vieceli-Garza at Thirst, and which contains 40 glorious pages of me, me, me (ahem). And if you don’t have one, but you want one, just drop me a line & I’ll send it to you.
- The Seduction poster for the Yale Architecture Lecture series, designed by Michael Bierut at Pentagram, and featuring my “clumsy and forced”, but otherwise sexy custom type. (A little in-joke, there, for avid readers of Design Observer.)
- and my own self promotion poster from 2003, which sometimes goes by the false promise of “Poster One”, and includes the death-defying phrase: “This being the first in a series of posters, Featuring an Exaltation of Protean Ornament and Other Fancy Stuff.” Please don’t ask about this so-called series.
I’m so happy for her!
