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 large format visual compendium of Ralph Steadman’s life as a cartoonist is also packed with his own abstract, irreverent prose. He wanted the book’s typographic layout to be as varied and loose as his art, and free from any traditional grid structure or inhibiting design rules. A limited edition of 1,000 signed, clothbound books have splatter book-block egdes and include a fine art print. The standard edition is the same size, but unsigned with plain page-edges and paper-wraped coverboard.
