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.

An oversize format emphasizes intimate close-ups and sweeping action shots in this collection by Hugh Holland. This slice of mid-seventies Americana is filled with counterculture teenage skateboarders practicing their craft in the vacant pools, beaches, streets and playgrounds of Southern California. It includes 120 large format images, translations and a Q&A with the artist.
