Mashable featured JESS3’s Creepy Cupid series of digital valentines as part of their Valentine’s Day coverage, publicizing their humour and connection to the all-too-real online world of dating. Our graphics, called a “hilarious set,” use real quotes from online dating site OKCupid to encapsulate the boldness — and the trepidations — of online dating. Ranging from the silly to the outright absurd, the shareable cards were optimized for social media and capitalized on the hashtag #CreepyCupid. Mashable noted that regardless of whether love is blind, our playful graphics are “all the visualization you need.”
Entering her seventh year with JESS3 this fall, Leslie Bradshaw has been recognized by Mashable as one of the top 44 female founders to know.

Following Super Tuesday, the Google Politics and Elections team partnered with JESS3 to visualize how each Republican candidate competed in the Super Tuesday states, in the categories of states won, Google Search interest, delegates won, and percentage of votes achieved. In six of the 10 states, the candidate who received the most search interest prior to Super Tuesday also won the state.
As a part of our ongoing partnership with the Google Politics team, we worked together to develop an infographic that tells the story of past host popularity at the annual White House Correspondent's Dinner. By tapping into YouTube and Google Search insights, we mapped the last six years of WHCD data in one single view. Big thanks to the New York Observer for the write up!
Notes Shasta Darlington of CNN: "They are an exclusive group of globe-trotting Internet investors, startup founders and tech junkies. Or you can just call them 'Geeks on a Plane.'" JESS3's Founder and CEO was one of said "geeks" who not only met with numerous entrepreneurs on the trip and throughout South America, but he also served as the trip's executive creative director where he lead the development of the trip's official comic book / "zine" and collateral. Look closely and you can see his signature JESS3 tee in CNN's shots of the trip!
JESS3 releases its newest installment in the “State of” series today with “The State of Cloud Computing,” an encompassing look at the history of cloud computing and the growing cloud economy.
