The team behind Microsoft’s Office 365 online software suite wanted to tell the story of the growth of small business through the increasing use of cloud computing. As a result, Microsoft partnered with JESS3’s expert data visualization team to create a vibrant, shareable graphic. The Small Businesses & the Cloud infographic outlines the top cloud-friendly cities in the US, the number of small businesses in the US and their growing use of the cloud.
Infographic and data visualization community Visual.ly featured The Workplace Zodiac, an infographic created by JESS3 for Mindjet, on its front page. Outlining the dynamics of different Work Personality Types, the infographic was the final piece of Mindjet’s Workology series, which examines every team member’s role for maximizing team success. Although the project’s original intention was to drive brand awareness, Mindjet incorporated the series into their sales team’s efforts as well. The infographic is now in the top 5% of Business content on Visual.ly.
JESS3 President, COO and Co-founder Leslie Bradshaw talks about our company's focus on data visualization, how it has given us a unique relationship with brands and platforms, and what it has meant to deviate from our core offerings in search of new revenue streams. "Our success has come from being best-in-class at one thing as opposed to being good at a lot of things," said Ms. Bradshaw. "We don't want to lose that as we go forward. It's tempting as clients ask us to do things two or three degrees to the right or left."

After the folks at the Washington sandwich shop Taylor Gourmet got a visit from President Obama on May 16, they decided to crunch the numbers and find out. President Obama spent exactly 15 minutes at Taylor Gourmet. That visit was enough to boost the stores’ sandwich sales by 15 percent. Orders for the Spruce Street (Obama’s hoagie of choice) jumped from 21 each day to 53 after the President’s visit. More in a very comprehensive infographic drawn up by design firm JESS3, after the jump."
