I have great news! I just saved a lot of money by switching over to…nevermind.
But, seriously. I recently put together some new packaging for Kostya Kimlat’s !WARNING trick and what do you know? It won an award! The 2011 American Package Design Award put out by Graphic Design USA, to be exact. So not only does he have an awesome bar trick, but he now has award winning packaging to go with it.
He had contracted with me to design both the DVD and the refill packages and he wanted something strong and bold that commanded attention. After working together with him, this is what we came up with. Combining loud vibrant colors with an attractive typographic layout these sleeves draw attention like a magnet.
I’d like to add a little magician humor to my blog just to keep things light and fun every once in a while. Thus begins “Stuff Magicians Like.” In the advent of this new humorous category, I thought it would be appropriate to make the first post about bandwagons.
Magicians like bandwagons. It could be anything. If one magician comes up with a great idea, there will be at least a baker’s dozen lining up to join in. Look at some of the tricks that have come out recently. The following tricks currently have a nice bandwagon going on: Pressure, Extreme Burn, and !Warning.
I have to admit that I, myself, am guilty of jumping on some of the existing bandwagons. I’m not saying that they’re a bad thing. After all, I’m sure that certain genres of magic have come about because of a bandwagon or two. Rubber band magic comes to mind for some reason. (No pun intended.)
So, whatever your preference, either go find one to jump on or sit on the sidelines and watch others jump on and have fun!
Look at me, I jumped on the “Stuff [Interchangable Subject] Like” bandwagon!
