Marian Bantjes: Intricate beauty by design | Video on TED.com
I have shown this video to a few of the Third year students already this week and it is quite inspirational (if you can overlook the U.S. intonation), it is a truism that if you enjoy your work and your work is personal it too could become mystifyingly popular...
"In graphic design, Marian Bantjes says, throwing your individuality into a project is heresy. She explains how she built her career doing just that, bringing her signature delicate illustrations to storefronts, valentines and even genetic diagrams."
I like the sugar drawings and the idea of making Valentines cards as self promotion.
