Back in 2013, the Canadian government announced some passport updates. Mostly, these were new security features – digitally embedded photos and electronic chips – as well as updated renewal terms and watermarks.

Image Fest Friday – 2/6/15
Visual design is amazing, right? It’s why Jess3 focuses so much data visualization – because turning complex ideas into art is powerful.

PSA: Dumb Ways to Die
“Dumb Ways to Die” is a cute, gruesome, fantastic musical PSA commissioned by Melbourne Metro (that’s Australia for the layman). Had PSA’s been this interesting when I was little I’d have paid alot more attention to them (would’ve saved me from putting a screwdriver in an electrical outlet).
Setting the Stage to Work Inspired: Mindjet Murals
How do you inspire an entire workplace to collaborate better? As thought leaders in the field of office collaboration, Mindjet wanted to walk the talk and inspire their team, so they came to JESS3 to design and install custom murals on “great collaborations in history” for their new office in the heart of San Francisco. Having done our own mural in the original JESS3 HQ in the DC office, we were excited to tackle a new mural experience. More than anything, we enjoyed helping Mindjet create a physical representation of their new, collaborative outlook.

Paris vs New York: A Tally of Two Cities
I love this project by Vahram Muratyan. The book is a beautiful object too. Not to mention it’s a great reference for snackable content a la This vs That. As for the video it was directed and edited by Tony Miotto, the audio really does a great job of bringing it all to life.
