Entrepreneurs, Help Heal the Economy!

I usually don’t post things that I receive through email, but I really like this inspirational video that Siamak Taghaddos helped put together.

Mr. Taghaddos is setting out to inspire entrepreneurs to heal the economy and change the world, and his latest project is the awesome video you see above (please visit the blog if the video doesn’t appear in your feed or email).

Some Background…

Mr. Taghaddos is the CEO and co-founder of Grasshopper, a virtual phone service for freelancers and small businesses. Interestingly enough, Taghaddos is inspiring change within his own company as Grasshopper is the result of a re-branding of GotVMail; the company he initially co-founded in 2003.

Along with the re-branding comes the desire to help inspire entrepreneurs to heal the economy and change the world, which appears to be the rallying cry for many entrepreneurs these days.

For the Detail Freaks…

As you know by now, I’m a stickler for having all the details and here they are:

For the Design Freaks…

Not only is the video inspirational, but I highly recommend taking note of the typography and visual design as inspiration for your own presentations.

Here are the design details just in case you were wondering:

  • Software used: Adobe After Effects
  • Fonts used: Swiss721BT and a custom handwritten font

In Conclusion…

I really hope you like the video, and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!

    Thanks for spreading the word about the Grasshopper video! Producing and writing it was an awesome experience because I got to work with two amazing and talented individuals: Ben and Carly. When people work together, great things can happen!
