Poster, Design Ignites Change, 2008

This is a Poster. It was designed by Marian Bantjes and made for (as the client) The Academy of Educational Development. It is dated 2008 and we acquired it in 2013. Its medium is laser cut wove paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

Design Ignites Change was created by Marian Bantjes for the Academy of Educational Development, a not-for-profit organization based in Washington D.C. that promotes the use of design in educational development. This poster is especially compelling because of its hand-crafted appearance. In contrast to normal laser cutting procedure, the text was cut from the front of the sheet so that the burn marks around the letters show in the final work.
At the time of proposed acquisition, the museum holds several works by Bantjes in its collection, dating from 2005 to 2007. Bantjes is a significant designer and this poster would help extend the museum’s documentation of her creative production.

This object was donated by Marian Bantjes. It is credited Gift of Marian Bantjes.
