Jackson Fish Market
Jackson Fish Market, founded by ex-Microsoft employees, creates “handcrafted software experiences”, or fairly small products with an emphasis on visual style and usability. Jackson Fish Market’s latest product is A Story Before Bed - a web service that lets parents and grandparents record videos of themselves reading children’s books to kids, when they can’t be there in person. Jackson Fish also has recently launched a line of iPhone apps for young children called Hippo Hooray that focus on teaching toddlers their numbers, letters, shapes, and colors.
Jackson Fish Market also has several consumer focused websites available for brand sponsorships including: They’re Beautiful! and They’re Ugly! - virtual flower services, Invitastic - a simple event invitation service, and What a Lovely Name - a baby naming service.
Jackson Fish Market’s direct competitors vary with each product, but the overall company is similar in philosophy to 37signals.
