    Growth, Creativity & Innovation: MediaLab’s Winning Year

    ML3DS 2015 AwardsCelebrating 20 years of service and innovative solutions was just one of MediaLab’s milestones this year.

    When it comes to growth, creativity and innovation, 2015 was a year of honors and recognition for MediaLab. Being ranked among Yahoo, Pandora and Yelp on Inc. 5000’s yearly list showed just how far we have come. MediaLab was also ranked on the Deloitte 2015 Technology Fast 500 list showing our growth among the fastest growing North American companies in the technology and media, like Hootsuite, Twitter, Facebook, Pandora, and Salesforce.

    Winning three Telly Awards for work we produced for our clients was thrilling. When we won three W³ Awards, it was like the cherry on top of the sundae. All of this recognition made our milestone 20th anniversary even sweeter.

    Inc. 5000 Ranking: 2,798

    5000For the first time, MediaLab was announced as part of the prestigious Inc. 5000 list. The announcement came on the heels of our expansion to our award-winning new headquarters in Tampa, Florida. Bruce VanWingerden, our CEO, feels that the Inc. 5000 ranking shows just how far MediaLab has come. “We’re producing our most innovative work to date, and our growth has no ceiling,” he said. “It’s really gratifying to be honored for the industry strides we have made.”

    Averaging an astounding three-year growth of 490%, the companies on the 2015 Inc. 5000 list made this year the most competitive crop in the list’s history. With aggregate revenue of $205 billion, the companies on this year’s list have generated 647,000 jobs over the past three years.

    MediaLab 3D Solutions Wins 2014 Coolest Office Space Award

    Badge-v01Recently, the Tampa Bay Business Journal crowned us one of the coolest office spaces in the Bay Area. In the process, they discovered the secret behind our ability to garner top talent and keep it. It’s all about the Foosball.

    Seriously, though, we couldn’t be prouder of our brand-new office space, and our cutthroat Foosball action (awesome though it may be) is just one small part of it. We believe it’s not just about paychecks and paid holidays. You need an inviting work environment to keep people happy and productive, not a gray cubicle-dwellers wasteland.

    And, when you build your business on artistry and innovation, you need a great creative space to make the magic happen. So, we decided to invest in our team’s environment in order to reap the richest creative fruit. And the payoff was immediate. After just a month, revenue and productivity were already trending up.

    Collaboration, Comfort…and Cappuccino

That meant adjustable sit/stand desks for ergonomic comfort, as well as fun break spaces, free snacks and gourmet coffee to help employees unplug and replenish their creative juices.

    More than 2,000 of our total 20,000 square feet are devoted to employee spaces like our fully-stocked gym and game room. We brought in new furnishings like file cabinet cubes that double as benches so coworkers can huddle-up without hovering over each other. We also had a chance to work with a couple of clients like Exemplis and Whirlpool in completing the new space.

    Then, we invited employees to make their spaces their own. [Read more…]
