The Origin of the Name:
In answer to a common question the name "Madfatter" has it's origins in a short story Trevor wrote in 1998 (and soon after appeared in an (unproduced) feature film script he was working on). The name is what the media dubbed a character who was kidnapping supermodels, fattening them up and then setting them free.
Soon Trevor was using the name for his email and website and it had taken on a life of it's own quite apart from it's absurd beginnings. By the time the corporation was formed it was the obvious choice and since that time Madfatter has come to represent hard work and creativity.
