Topic: Graphic Design for Magicians!
Message: Posted by: Masonogy1 (Jun 25, 2008 05:30AM)
Hey guys,

I recently started up a website with services to help magicians around the world gain a brand identity when it comes to selling themselves or their business. I have been doing graphic design for as long as I can remember having a computer and am currently studying a Bachelor of Arts (Design) at Curtin University of Technology Australia. If you ever need proffessional one to one service then "MMagic" is the place to go! :)

You can check out all the details at:

I look forward to working with some of you! :)

Cheers guys,
Mason Roberts

Two edits you might want to make:

1. Writing paper is "stationery", not "stationary".
2. "Singular stationery item" should probably be "Single stationery item"

Also, you are a graphic artist, so where are the website graphics? You need something to showcase your work.

What experience do you have in advertising, promotion and marketing?

Well, s I said I am currently studying a Bachelor of Arts (Design) at Curtin University of Technology Australia.

Also I have just recently completed a 30 page plus, Corporate Identity Manual which deals with the company "Marco's Fussy Meats" (logo is on the website) here in Australia. These manual's deal with how the company is to use the logo created/page formatting (dimensions, proportions, things to do/not to do etc). It also deals with promotional media in which I created an ad campaign that would help to boost the business.

I hope that helps everyone!

Cheers guys

For the last month or so, Mason has been working on a logo and some other designs for me. Magic forums aren't normally where I would look for this kind of service, but when I saw some of his past work, I decided to give him a shot.

His experience was questioned here, and all I can say is that he carries himself professionally and delivers a polished product. I know, because I've spent thousands of dollars on graphic design in the past from well recommended designers, and am getting better work out of Mason.

He seems to have a healthy amount of original artistic inspiration, but isn't afraid to change his designs to fit a client's needs. Doesn't complain about any number of emails, or me changing my mind for no reason, and is prompt to send asked for revisions and updates.

My new logo is being printed on Owen's A.T.A. cases as we speak, and over the next few months, as I pick up steam, his advertising will be visible in national media here in Panama.

In case you haven't noticed, I highly recommend Mason's work!

Cheers,

Stuart

You still need to correct the spelling of "stationery".

Singal Stationery should be Single Stationery, unless you intend to offer Signal Stationary, often used to attract attention during a disaster while remaining in the same location.

That's because they aren't misspelled - only misused.

Hey guys,

I filmed myself from start to finish, the process of designing a logo and time lapsed the whole thing for your viewing pleasure! :)

YouTube - Time Lapse Logo Design

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uDnln3dp7E

FINAL: LogoSauce - Saniwares

The Logo:

The brief required me to design a logo for "Saniware" a company which specializes in sanitary wares and bathroom toilet fixtures.

It was essential for the logo to have a distinct logo mark. This mark must be modern, fresh, uncomplicated, bold, positive, and best of all elegant. It also must express modernism, design, high quality and eco-friendliness.

I hope you enjoy!

Cheers,
Mason Roberts
