Week 107 of Type Tuesday. Each week I’m sharing five free fonts that I’ve come across for you to use and enjoy. I hope you like what I have picked out this time. Be sure to comeback next week for another great set.
When I was approached by BodyShopBids to create a video for them I was really excited. I love working with the startups at Lightbank and I loved the idea behind BodyShopBids. No one likes to deal with the hassle of getting their car repaired and if I could help show how simple it was to use BodyShopBids, that would really help the company reach their goal. The team at BodyShopBids wanted a video that would stand out and something they could use for a while without looking dated. They showed me a couple concept images they had come across with a puzzle idea. At the time I had just downloaded Carcassonne for the iPhone and instantly could see the style of connected blocks would work really well for this video.
I pulled together a couple videos that I had seen that did a great job of the block pieces.
From there I reached out to Jess Donofrio to help with the modeling of the BodyShopBids world in Cinema 4D. Her and I did a couple test shots to make sure the concept was going to work the way we had envisioned. We went through a number of rough cuts on this video. Nothing that major ever changed from the format of the script or from the original concept. I just wanted to make sure everyone was able to get their input in to make a project that was perfect.
The day the video was finished I uploaded it to vimeo and BodyShopBids put it on their website. Apparently everyone at the Lightbank office loved the video which is great to hear because I’m a fan of working with everyone there. Right now BodyShopBids is working on a new website so the video isn’t on the homepage at the moment but hopefully it makes it way there soon. Jess and I should be starting another version of the video very soon, I’m a big fan of this style so I hope that BodyShopBids needs a few more done in the future.

I wanted to share the LooseKeysPress Release that we put out today. This was something we should of put out when we first launched but figured now that the site is up and we have some projects under our belt, it was a good time. If you know anyone that might find it interesting, please pass it onto them.
