L - Print by Bret MacFadden



"As a designer, I’m often attracted to the elements of typography that aren’t strictly letterforms—the rules, dashes, dingbats and borders that have provided structure and decoration since the dawn of moveable type. This composition celebrates those simple pieces by having them work in concord to collectively assemble the letterform."

Brett MacFadden is a partner in MacFadden & Thorpe. The studio has a focus on custom type—constructed out of basic, elemental forms—and have done typographic installations at a number of galleries in recent years. He and his business partner Scott Thorpe teach experimental typography at the California College of the Arts.
