On October 20, 2020, The Threekit Virtual Photographer™️ was named a Chicago Innovation Award winner. The Chicago Innovation Awards, celebrating it's 19th year, is the Chicago region’s foremost recognition of the most innovative new products or services brought to market each year.
Virtual photography has certainly grown by leaps and bounds since we launched the category just one year ago.
In the time since we launched Threekit's Virtual Photographer, Threekit has already become the world's largest product photographer. In 2020, we are on track to take more than 10 million photos for customers like Crate & Barrel, Kashiyama, Tailored Brands, and Lovesac.
We built this amazing product for our customers but every once in a while it's great to get recognized more broadly too.
We're thrilled to be recognized as a Chicago Innovation Award winner in 2020.
