Client: Mark Strange
Project: new website
Website: http://www.markstrange.ca/

When magician and magic prop comedy artists Mark Strange wanted to upgrade his ageing, home-made website, he asked Akira Studio to conjure up something special.

Black and red, the colours of magic

Mark has some great images of him performing, so Akira designed a classic black background on the website to ensure the images leap off the page. This was teamed with a rich red colour scheme, and a theatre-themed Home page complete with stage curtains, spotlights and a red curtain backdrop.

Promoting prestidigitation

Mark is not just a magician, he is a master of prestidigitation, magic performed close up and personal for your entertainment and delight. Mark wanted a smart, theatrical style website that promoted his different show types and also highlighted his four main markets areas: corporate events, private parties, restaurants and trade shows.

SEO keywords working their magic

Akira Studio conducted in-depth SEO keyword research to ensure his website text and meta tags used the best keyword for all these different areas. The research showed, for example, that corporate clients were searching using quite different keywords to private clients.

By incorporating the appropriate keywords into the correct pages, akira will ensure Mark's website is found for a greater number of searches for a whole range of keywords, not just one or two.
