In 1989, Donald Moffett and Marlene McCarty founded Bureau, a “trans-disciplinary design studio” whose mandate was to produce art, film titles, political work, and brand identities. Bureau was a multidisciplinary design studio and collaboration between principals Donald Moffett and Marlene McCarty, with Claudia Brandenburg, Kiers Alexandra, Mary Day, Lucy Hitchcock, and Gabriel Feliciano, who viewed their unique design studio as a service provider and, more significantly, as an author of social messages.
