WASHINGTON, Jan. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --Creative agency JESS3 opens its flagship office in the nation's capital after experiencing a 300 percent revenue increase in the last year.

As one of the first agencies in the industry to be founded and lead entirely by digital natives, the company's growing client roster includes Nike, Google, Intel, NASA and Samsung.

Located at 1707 L Street NW, JESS3's offices were secured with help from McBride Real Estate Services.

"JESS3 is a real game changer in the industry; we are disruptive, distributed and digital is part of our DNA," said co-founder and President Leslie Bradshaw. "This is our Mad Men moment – we are defining a generation by truly fusing innovation and consumer engagement."

To support the continued growth and demand, JESS3 has increased its core team by 450 percent, with 22 full-time employees and a distributed network of nearly 200 worldwide.

Ground-breaking projects for the company have included:

  • Executing data visualization installations for multiple Fortune 100 brands
  • Producing commercials for Google, including a stop-motion papercraft video for Gmail
  • Designing Facebook's "Stories" site for its 500MM user announcement
  • Brokering the inaugural geosocial check-in from space
  • Being named the social media agency of record for NIKEiD

"It made a lot of sense to open our doors in DC given that it is the epicenter of information for our country," said Jesse Thomas, founder and CEO. "As information designers, we feel right at home."
