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.

James Lawson Institute

/ Non-Profit Branding / Logo, Advertising, Socials, Web Template

During the Civil Rights Movement, James Lawson advised Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and his inner circle on stategies of non-violent resistance. Today he holds yearly 4-day intensive training sessions for experienced activists on the techniques used by Ghandi and Dr. King. We established a logo and identity, ad and social templates, and modified a Wordpress theme they could use on their own.
