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.

RAND Labor & Population

/ Booklet & Brochures / 7 x 7” / 6c Offset

Labor & Population (L&P) is a division within the RAND Corporation that assists governments worldwide with social policy matters by providing economic research and analysis. These brochures and booklets serve as “leave-behinds” after one-on-one meetings with clients. Working within corporate guidelines to design a cohesive brand for the department we created a system that was then applied to a series of brochures for many of the individual centers within L&P.
