Born and raised on a sheep and cattle farm in rural Australia, Marian was drawn to the Kootenays over ten years ago by a love of mountains and nature. In the decade before putting down roots in Canada, she travelled the world extensively, favouring an unplanned approach with an open ticket. In between, she studied visual communications at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia, where she gained an appreciation for typography and design.
Since then, Marian has accumulated over 15 years of industry experience designing strategically for both print and web. Early in her career Marian worked in editorial design with De Luxe & Associates, working on projects such as the redesign of the South China Morning Post and Asia Money magazine. From 2011-2017 Marian was responsible for clarifying, developing and implementing Selkirk College design brand standards. A multidisciplinary approach continues to be applied in Marian's design practice where understanding content, people and context is key in developing relevant and inspiring visual communications.
Marian's passion and skill in typography and information design has been shared in her teaching career beginning at the University of Technology Sydney Australia where Marian tutored foundational typography and magazine design in studio classes. Marian continues teaching typography and graphic design communications here at Selkirk College in the Digital Arts & New Media program in Nelson.
