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.

/ Painting Portfolio Website / HTML5, Ruby on Rails / Visit Site

Starting with a full screen blast of closeup texture, this portfolio site uses the square logotype area to house the navigation so that the visual field is kept clean, spare and white like the walls of a museum. Simple captioning and slideshow play button are the only other things on the page. The artist is able to upload new imagery and text through the simple, browser-based, backened interface.
