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.

The database backend lets the article list have multilevel keywords, tags and sorts. The site contains an excerpt of her new book The Tender Soldier, as well as links to purchase and speaking engagement announcements. She manages web-collected mailing list information with Mail Chimp. The site scales seamlessly to idevices.
