Benjamin Earl London Contemporary Magician

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Here is what I want from you. Basic site redesign plus 4 additional major graphical headers, with 8/10 sub-headers

I'm looking for a redesign of my current site http://www.benjaminearl.com. In its current guise the site is about 2 years old and I’d like to give it a fresh look.

I AM A MAGICIAN BUT I DO NOT WANT BUNNIES, WANDS, DOVES, ORIENTAL BOXES.

I AM A SLEIGHT OF HAND EXPERT AND ALSO PERFORM PSYCHOLOGICAL GAMES AND MIND TRICKS. SO I WANT A SITE THAT SUGGESTS INTELLIGENCE, EXPERTISE AND DEDICATION. I LIKE THE IDEA OF A COIN FLIPPING IN THE AIR TO SYMBOLISE PART OF THIS CONCEPT.

The main focus should be on corporate design as my clients are CEO's and media executives. I also work at private parties and exclusive events so the site needs to appeal to those demographics as well.

I am after a mainly white and silver site with colour used subtly. I feel that colour used in the right way on this site can be very powerful and visually stunning. I would also like one or two photo’s of happy people watching magic...people don't buy magic, they buy the experience magic brings. I don’t want the pictures to be used in a cheesy way, elegant please. Imagine a very classy slick modern site that perhaps a company like Apple may like. I may have another page on the site for pictures so don’t go overboard on using them, less is more.

I want the logo (BE illustrator file), phone number web address and email address all in a banner at or near the top of the page. I would also like the site to suggest an air of celebrity cool like you may see for an actor or an artist. White and silver (colour used intelligently), remember appealing to corporate clients including a hint of personality with an edge.

To sum up - modern, crisp, stylish design with a dash of quirkiness. If you check out http://www.Noelqualter.com you will see the way that the header and footer has been styled I like this very much do not copy it but I like this aspect. I also like the background effect in the following website; http://jaredcampbell.com/ but it may not fit with the corporate style. I am very open minded about this project so please feel free to be creative because I may see something I like that I wouldn’t have otherwise considered. Please feel free to play around with the photo’s in anyway that you want (photoshop etc).

I will give a link to download additional photographs for you to use as source material. Remember eventually I want it to be search engine friendly so consider this within your design.

Here is a Yousendit link where you can download photos of me performing, additional artwork, logos etc. http://download.yousendit.com/Q01IY…eFhIRGc9PQ

Any questions? PM me or post here. I've made time in my diary for plenty of feedback so I can help as much as possible.

Thank you and good luck!

Ben
