A little late, but...

Welcome to the new website, I hope you like it!
This isn’t the first time I’ve changed things round here and it probably won’t be the last...Much like my work, my website, branding and image is ever evolving.
As well as magic I have a huge passion for design. For me, when it comes to design, it’s all about the detail.
In many ways magic and design are very similar. As a witness to my magic you don’t always get to see the tiny subtleties and nuances I put into each performance. A lot of time is spent refining each performance to the point where you aren’t aware of these small details. They become invisible. After all, it’s my job as the magician to hide ‘the truth’ so as to not ruin the experience. Good design works much the same way.
Good design is invisible.
I once read a great quote by UI designer, Damien Jolley;
“Good design is like a refrigerator—when it works, no one notices, but when it doesn’t, it sure stinks.”
To me this is also applies to magic. As a Magician, you can spend hours, days and months on tiny, minute details that no one will ever notice or see. It’s these tiny details that make the magic happen. As much as it’s sad knowing that no one will ever see these details, it’s also quite satisfying!
I’ve often felt that my website, social media and blog can act as mirrors. Places to reflect all the details I care so much about. So here we go, I consider this new website a new beginning, a fresh start.
I’m extremely proud of this site and even prouder to say that I designed it all myself. I hope you love it too.
