Designing for a Cause

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

The last time we caught up with Marian Bantjes more than two-and-a-half years ago, we learned why the self-described graphic artist left the corporate world to forge her own path, discussed why a large majority of modern design bores her, and dove into the inspiring eye candy that is her book, I Wonder. Now, Bantjes is back on our radar, but this time she's fighting for a cause. 

She recently created, lit, and photographed 50 different designs for the backs of a 50-card set for the The Luxe Project, a new initiative that allows brilliant designers to showcase specific work for a month with the 100 percent of the proceeds going to the designer's charity of choice. The profits from Bantjes' non-traditional business cards, which allow their owners to write whatever they want on the blank back of the card, will benefit Because I am a Girl, a global initiative to end gender inequality, promote girls' rights, and lift millions of girls out of poverty around the world.
