Partnering again with Eloqua, JESS3 has assembled some of the most interesting facts about the Austin-based festival since it came into existence some 25 years ago. The History of SXSW infographic also maps out the immense growth in attendance over the past few years of the music, film, and most recently, the interactive portions of South by South West.
JESS3 earns notice for being one of five of DC’s hottest startups with the “Best Startup Swag.” InTheCapital gives a shout-out to JESS3 swag calling the t-shirts, “absurdly awesome and well designed to the point where you feel guilty for accepting it for free.” Along with the swag applaud, InTheCapital states JESS3 founder and CEO, Jesse Thomas as, “easily one of the coolest people you will ever meet in D.C. Tech.” Did it stop there? Not exactly. InTheCapital writer Carl Pierre went on to state, “if I saw any JESS3 t-shirts, posters, or pins -- being sold in a store, I would not hesitate to whip out my wallet and pay actual money for it.”
The POLITICO's Emily Schultheis reported on Google's announcement surrounding the types of information voters are paying attention to, noting that "their findings show the extent to which Americans have moved toward online and mobile media and away from traditional TV." Schultheis added: "The post is an extension of Google's 'Four Screens to Victory' concept for campaigns, which outlines the ways voters use four screens to get their political information: TV, computer, mobile and tablet." The infographic that was released along side the report was designed by the JESS3 team.
Google Earth reached 1 billion downloads and asked the infographic experts at JESS3 to help commemorate the milestone.

If you are the company you keep, then being mentioned along side Nike, GE and Chevy means you are doing something right. JESS3 could not be more proud to have helped contribute to this year's big win for Samsung at SXSW as the lead agency behind the design, development and curation of their #smartwall. We also loved that the Fast Company reporter Greg Fernestein clued in on Samsung and these brands as ones who have opted "for hands-on experiences and utility at SXSW" -- the new model of marketing that aims to empower, aid and co-create with consumers.
