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.

Sitting between the neighborhoods of Little Italy and Chinatown this Manhattan restaurant and nightclub embraces a 1930s aesthetic. The graphic identity supports an era-specific story of friendship and cultural merging in the time of the discreet speakeasy—Chan inspiring the downstairs cocktail lounge and Louie the street level Italian restaurant and adjoining private dining room. The website features a custom reservation system for the private dining room.
