M&T is a design studio based in San Francisco, founded in 2008 by Brett MacFadden and Scott Thorpe. Rather than specialize in one medium, client type, or area of inquiry, we focus our work on an overall commitment to craft and a pragmatic approach to bringing ideas to life.

We believe strongly in the power of partnership and the ability of design to improve and clarify. We’ve been fortunate to count a number of clients with whom we’ve had ongoing multi-year relationships. We believe these relationships attest to our creativity, dependability, ever-evolving technological know-how, and value. And being fun.

We are a small and talented team with a wide variety of skills and capabilities, and along with our network of artists, builders, and printers there is little we can’t do. We’d love to here from you: info@macfaddenandthorpe.com
