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's President and COO Leslie Bradshaw shares a page from our "cookbook" to achieve greatness, a mantra that keeps us focused on bigger, faster, stronger: "You are only as good as your last (project, meeting, shot, deal, call, etc.)"
In support of Mozilla's release of the latest version of its browser, Firefox 4, JESS3 crafted a minute-long spot to highlight its exciting new features. Using advanced digital-animation techniques, the video simulates a papercraft production. Vibrant visuals, coupled with the lively original soundtrack and personable voice over, educate viewers about the non-profit’s latest launch.
Capital Business reporter Tom Heath announced on Monday: "The founders of JESS3 — the District-based visual storyteller for corporations such as Google, NIKEiD and ESPN — are moving to Los Angeles next month. For good." Adding that, "JESS3 co-founder Leslie Bradshaw tells us the company set up offices in Highland Park a year ago. Bradshaw, who founded the firm with Jesse Thomas and is one of the key players in the local business scene, said the move will enable the firm to better serve their West Coast clients, which make up 90 percent of JESS3’s business."
Eloqua and JESS3 have partnered again to create the sequel to The Future of Revenue. This video defines Revenue Performance Management and its impact on not only the world of sales and marketing but on the future of business as a whole. Eloqua wanted to define this slightly abstract concept more thoroughly, and to show that Revenue Performance Management adds a more scientific, and less creative, element to marketing.
Google Earth reached 1 billion downloads and asked the infographic experts at JESS3 to help commemorate the milestone. We selected the “Around the world in 60 seconds” concept to add a story-telling dimension to the infographic while highlighting the ease and speed with which users can explore some of the most fascinating parts of the globe.
