Marian Bantjes and Louis Fishauf

27 Sep

This week’s artist study assignment is Marian Bantjes and Louis Fishauf.

Marian’s website should come with a seizure warning! (I’ve never been so overwhelmed with pattern and that I wanted to pull my eyes out, until I tapped into her website.) Regardless, I really am impressed by her textile designs and patterns, especially in her book covers.

Her use of physical texture is also pretty interesting, for example, to create the design on the fan, she used nail polish!

Props to thinking out of the usual toolbox!      http://www.bantjes.com/ (you’ve been warned)
Louis Fishauf’s (website is beautiful) minimalist editorial design is very eye-catching.
His placement of text in this spread for example.

His graphic design is definitely attention-getting, fun and colorful, and a little chaotic with graphics but not insane. lfishauf3

It was really neat looking at both of these artists, I learned two things for sure:

1) You can do so many things with your artwork or aesthetic sense, so go for it all.
2) Be kind to the design students, and do not ever use swirlies on your website background.
