SASE #2 is by design team MacFadden & Thorpe. Entitled CARDS FOR BUSINESS, it is a double sided series of thermographically printed, perforated, business cards for use in all situations where business cards are required.
SASE is an ongoing project of THE THING in which we commission individuals to produce a limited edition project that must fit within a standard envelope and is free and available to anyone who sends us a SASE (Self Addressed Stamped Envelope). SASE #2 is the second in a series of four SASE projects commissioned by THE THING Quarterly. This project is made possible by Southern Exposure's Alternative Exposure Grant and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
- MACFADDEN AND THORPE
San Francisco-based graphic designers Brett MacFadden and Scott Thorpe have worked as MacFadden & Thorpe since 2008. They work with a breadth of clients — from corporations to individual artists — and since Issue 3.5 (Tucker Nichols) have assisted the Thing Quarterly in the packaging and presentation of Thing projects. The studio is particularly focused on custom typography and recently completed a typographic installation at the 25th International Brno Biennial. In 2009, Chronicle Books published a gift book of their lettering.
Brett and Scott have MFA’s from the Cranbrook Academy of Art and Rhode Island School of Design, respectively. They currently teach at the California College of Arts (CCA), and grew up in adjacent towns in Massachusetts.
