july 17th ~ 18th

Well, I’m not sure where Jeremy of Jeremy & Kathleen is this weekend, but I know where Kathleen is… right here! She is a designer, blogger, and all-around super cool chick. I’m jealous of her sense of style, her ‘&‘ tattoo, and of course, her kicky hair-do {…have a look, I’m sure you’ll agree}. Anywho, here’s who Kathleen is jealous of, and I couldn’t agree more!

I am jealous of Marian Bantjes

Marian Bantjes is so cool. And talented. And sassy. And look – she can make typographic art out of sugar, peonies and dirt on her kitchen table. Not only am I jealous of her work but I’m jealous of the people she calls her friends.

Not only is Marian Bantjes is an amazing designer and typographer but her work challenges what it means to be a designer. Marian Bantjes is not trying to be a problem solver but instead by making design beautiful. Like a fine artist, Marian makes her work personal, but like a designer her art exists within a commercial sphere. Her work ethic and design philosophy are beyond inspiring. I want to be just like Marian Bantjes when I grow up.

    I love this — especially the smashed “empathy” penny posted on the J&K blog. I want one!
