Since teaming in 1995, we’ve produced graphic design works for corporate, independent and non-profit clients. Our current projects include branding/identity systems with a strong web component as well as a few fine art books. We develop database-backed websites with custom CMS implementations and have produced web-scraping data collection tools and other specialized web-based apps. Together we look for the unique voice of a project (Ben steering from the tech side and Carrie the art) and with the help of skilled assistance are always able to find it. We think design lies not only in the visual but in the unseen structures that support it, both aspects keep everybody at Thirdthing constantly searching for the simplest solutions.

This redesign of a book (with the same title) published by the Sierra Club in the 1960s joins written observations from Thoreau during the late 1800s with the imagery of nature photographer Eliot Porter. This coupling of word and landscape, with interjections from Walden as well, have remained intact only the design has been updated. The removable title band encourages the book to remain off the shelf and out for perusal.
