MacFadden & Thorpe – Brett MacFadden, Scott Thorpe — San Francisco, USA

Typography is a foundation element of their practice, and they look to letterforms to provide a specific tone to a project. They purposely do not specialize in any one thing, however, as it happens, a lot of their work has been with the arts. All their completed works are smart and functional, while maintaining their signature minimalist quality.

Founded in 2008 by Brett MacFadden and Scott Thorpe, this superb design partnership and studio attacks a wide range of design projects, putting emphasis on craftsmanship and a content driven approach. The studio is particularly focused on custom typography and their belief is that good design can clarify anything.
