Happy Birthday 3Squared!

10th June 2013

Today is our birthday!  11 years ago today, James Fox and Tim Jones started 3Squared with the simple aim of creating exciting software and applications.  Apart from that momentous occasion, we decided to have a look back at what else happened during June 2002.

  • - Earth has a near-miss as an asteroid skims past at just 75,000 miles away – the second closest in history

What a fantastic 11 years it has been, twice having to relocate to bigger offices and working with some of the biggest brands in the UK.

2013 is set to be a big year for 3Squared, so here’s to the next 11 years!
