The Best Style from Down Under

Marion Hall Best was an Australian textile merchant and Interior Designer back in the day when the profession was just being born.  She had been a student of architecture in Sydney, and in the 1930s took on her first interiors client. Marion Best even took a correspondence course from New York on Interior Design in the late 1930s. Can you imagine? 
Her style was bright, mod, bold, and colorblocking...all in my wheelhouse of style. Her innovation and perspective is as fresh today as impactful as it was in the 1940s-1970s.  Marion Best Pty. Ltd. the logo and business card are pure genius. Influential, inspirational, dynamic. I love nothing more than an artist or designer that expresses who they are, what they believe, and how they see the world.  Marion Hall Best was one of those people, and she left her imprint on design for decades.

Amaaaaaaaazing logo!  Hello! 

I am sure this business card layout and logo was quite forward for the time. Although timeless today. Take note.
