JESS3 CEO and Founder Jesse Thomas along with President, COO and Co-founder Leslie Bradshaw are included in Inc.'s list for America's 30 Coolest Entrepreneurs Under 30 (2012). Along with being included in the list, Inc's J.J. McCorvey covers JESS3's rise to its present day status, "JESS3 is now packing up and moving to Los Angeles, and has developed a specialty in data visualization -- the company employs tactics like stop-motion animation, infographics, and puppetry (yes, puppetry) to present large sets of information for clients like Google, Nike, and ESPN."
JESS3 earned high praise at the Beagle Short Tale Awards. The video "Future of Revenue," created in conjunction with Eloqua, was recognized with three awards: Best Story Telling, Best Video with an Educational Theme and Best Animation. JESS3 also won Best Production for its three "State of" releases in 2010.
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."
As ICANN prepared to make a big Top Level Domain-related announcement in early 2011, JESS3 was commissioned by the Washington Post to bring a visual storytelling angle to the changing tides of domain names. The challenge was how to give an "out with the old, in with the new" feel. As the TLD story continues to unfold, JESS3's art is as relevant as ever. Notes Washington Post reporter Hayley Tsukayama: "The organization tasked with regulating the Web’s domain names — that’s everything to the right of the dot in a URL — released its list detailing who has applied for new Web suffixes Wednesday. Companies who applied for new addresses include Apple, Amazon, Google and Microsoft as well as prominent firms such as Macy’s, Wal-Mart and Tiffany. Each application cost the companies $185,000."
