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.

/ Retail Website / HTML5, Ruby on Rails

By making subtle layout and behavior changes we turned a basic site for this New York based luxury handbag brand into a more sophisticated expression of their style. The new site is more legible and user friendly, its fluidly hiding navigation area, animated transitions, clarified ecommerce and mobile device scaling more aptly suit the brand and their finely-crafted products.
