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.

William Claxton’s visual recount of his days spent hanging out with the actor as both friend and subject. These candid shots show McQueen on-set, on location, at home, or at play during off-hours. The collection spins your typical view of this movie icon as easygoing cool guy, you can see just beneath the surface a man who can too easily get lost in either intense earnestness or mischievous silliness. Includes translations.
