Launching a blog in today’s over-saturated web space is no easy feat. To do so successfully is even more remarkable. Eloqua, partnering once again with JESS3, recognizes some of the best blogs launched within the past two years in The Blog Tree: New Growth, a follow-up to the noted original released in late 2010.
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.”
JESS3 and Brian Solis partnered up again to create an full update of their 2009 infographic and directory of Twitter applications, the Twitterverse. The Twitterverse displays the most notable apps, organized by their design and functionality.
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.”
Along with Samsung, Sears and the Boomer Esiason Foundation, JESS3 built a social media for social actions site that leverages foursquare, Twitter and Facebook to help "tackle" CF. Aiming to raise $150k, every tweet, check-in and Like drive the ball forward in the fight.
Instead of posting our usual weekly team Mobile Uploads, we’ve rounded up some of the actions our team members have taken to protest the SOPA and PIPA initiatives. The team has signed petitions, called local reps, and transferred 175 domains from GoDaddy, an early supporter of SOPA, to Namecheap.
Working closely with the NIKEiD's brand team, JESS3 adapted their award-winning builder to be seamlessly integrated into Facebook. The NIKEiD Zoom Kobe VI iD Facebook application produced more than 2,500 user-submitted designs within the first 36 hours.
Often overshadowed online by their domestic counterparts, several "big cat" species worldwide have declined and now face near-extinction. Taking action, National Geographic launched a social media campaign to raise awareness with help from JESS3 on the design front. Rawr!
