A gauntlet has been thrown, everyone. Darik Volpa – the CEO of a little company called Understand.com – and our own CEO, James Kosta have decided to face off later this month. A friendly amount of bickering regarding our two companies sharing the NCET 2012 “Software Company of the Year” award has led us to a kickball challenge happening on June 22nd. The kickball game – the inaugural of what will hopefully catch on as an annual tech company kickball challenge – will take place on the Reno Aces field starting at 1pm. The event will be free, so come show your support, or just get a laugh out of a bunch of artists and computer programmers running around a baseball field. Our early prediction: 3G will prevail!
We are proud to announce that 3G Studios was named one of the Northern Nevada Human Resources Association’s best places to work for 2012! We love being able to come to work every day and do what we love, and it’s really great to be recognized for that. Thank you so much to the NNHRA and everyone else involved in making this happen.
The open house was amazing last night! Thank you so much to all of the people who came by and made it memorable. Thank you to Kenji’s, Gourmelt, Fat Burger, The Cheese Board, Great Thyme Catering, Craft Reno, and especially to our wonderful friends at The Abbi Agency for all of their help in making it such a successful evening. We’re also happy to announce that Joe Chavez was the winner of the social media contest we put on during the open house. You’ll be able to see his likeness in one of 3G’s upcoming projects.Now, time to finish cleaning this place up!
Our open house is tonight! We’re so excited to finally show off our space in Downtown Reno and also to show off all the work we’ve put in preparing for tonight! We have beer and wine being provided by Craft Reno, and we have food coming from Kenji’s, Gourmelt, Fat Burger, The Cheese Board, and Great Thyme Catering! We also have demonstrations of our motion capture studio scheduled, green screen photography, video games, and other things you’ll just have to stop by to see. Not convinced yet? We’re also having a contest this evening, and the winner’s likeness will appear in an upcoming 3G project. This is going to be great!
It’s such a beautiful spring day! We’re happy to be able to send some of our people out to the Will Golf Fore Food golf tournament at the Wolf Run Golf Course in support of UNR’s student athletes. Wish all of our people luck out there today. Fore!
3G is going to be throwing an open house on May 8th, 2012. We haven’t yet had the chance to properly showcase our office since we moved to Downtown Reno, so we’re planning a big event for family, friends, business friends, and neighbors to come check out our digs. More news to follow as we hammer out the details!
The NCET Awards ceremony was amazing.Thank you so much to Dave Archer and everyone else with NCET and to all the event sponsors. We’re proud to be named the 2012 “Software Company of the Year,” and we’re happy to be able to share the award with Darik Volpa and the other fine folks over at Understand.com. Finally, thank you so much to the Eldorado Hotel & Casino for doing such a fine job hosting the awards, and congratulations to all of the other finalists and winners!
We are so excited for the NCET Awards tomorrow night! We have been nominated for this year's "Software Company of the Year." Everyone here feels so honored even to be nominated again after being named the NCET 2011 “Technology Company of the Year” last year. Fingers crossed everyone!
Welcome to the new 3G Studios website. Last year (2011) was an extraordinarily busy one for us. We doubled our office space, built new studio facilities like a new lounge and recording studio and upgraded our motion capture system. We also hired a cadre of the most talented artists and programmers.
3G has welcomed aboard a diverse group of individuals with enormous talent. We're proud to say that their expertise has allowed us to expand into several new industries and deliver winning solutions across the board.
Last year we expanded our client base to include even more partners at the top of their game (no pun intended). The caliber of client we work with means we get some of the most interesting problems to solve. It's hard work, but at the end of the day working side by side with talented individuals both within 3G and at our clients makes it all worth it.
3G has a full year already planned for 2012. No one can say if everything will go according to plan, but we're going to give it our best shot. We are planning a resurgence into the video game market in a big way and have several other huge announcements forthcoming.
