JESS3: Advertising Agency of the Week

This is my first Agency of the Week post. My criteria includes: agencies that deliver some distinction, a competitive positioning, have figured out what the agency of the future might look like, delivers “great” work (my personal opinion), appears to be a destination agency for incoming new business and seems to be able to get out of their way to sell themselves. And, this is a rare one, has some soul and maybe even a sense of humor.


JESS3. LA and Oklahoma City. Not the usual mix. (Compare JESS3 to other LA agencies here in the Pinterest Advertising and Digital Agency directory.)

What JESS3 says:

At JESS3 we take complex topics and large data sets and make them accessible through beautiful visuals.

We are a creative interactive agency that specializes in the art of data visualization, adding context and meaning to the exponentially growing world of data around us.


JESS3 is a creative interactive agency that specializes in visual storytelling. We challenge ourselves and our clients to push the limits of what creativity and engagement means. Our services range from UI / UX, animation, content creation and digital PR to developing large-scale installations, social strategies, data visualizations and infographics.

Why I Dig JESS3:

They specialize. A major zag while other agencies zig by trying to do too much and have an unfocussed agency positioning.

They are positioned for success. They meld data with visual storytelling. Two biggies.

They have lots of cool clients like Amnesty International, AMEX, Chobani, CSPAN, GE, Facebook, Google, Samsung and Skype.

They are hot:

They are funny:
