Third Slant is a creative technology studio.

We believe technology should work correctly, delight people, do no harm, be accessible, and push the boundaries of culture and science.

We are researchers, designers, and engineers, and we take pride in being able to tackle any project, no matter how large, small, weird, or unexpected.

What makes us different?

  • We’ve delivered technology projects at scale, some which are now used around the world by billions of people.
  • We are proud of our track record delivering on time and above expectations when timelines are tight and stakes are high, and we'll always tell it to you straight.
  • We believe every great idea starts off sounding like a really dumb idea and that absurdity is the only rational way to deal with an absurd world.

About us

Joey Yang is the principal designer and creative technologist for Third Slant. He has delivered projects for collectives, startups, and Fortune 500 companies. Some are now enjoyed by hundreds of millions of people across the world, and some just put a big smile on a few faces.

Joey has a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Rice University, where he also minored in Computational and Applied Mathematics and ran KTRU 91.7fm Rice Radio.

In his spare time, he likes to play music, read books, ride bikes, and stare into the sun.

We are based out of Oakland but have computer and will travel, and our rates are flexible for nonprofits and other organizations doing good work.

Tell us your dumbest, wackiest, most outlandish idea, and let's work.
