Design Art Deco-style banner ads for our magic bar and theater
Check out forcynthia's Banner ad contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
Chicago Magic Lounge is an Art Deco-style magic theater and speakeasy bar located in Chicago, IL that produces live magic shows 7-nights-a-week for adults (21+) looking for the next big thing in nightlife and entertainment. We specialize in close-up and parlor magic. We are very popular with couples looking for a unique date night, and with large parties looking to celebrate a special occasion.
What's your vision?
Storyboards for 5 standard banners (320x50, 728x90, 300x250, 300x600, 970x90). Goal: Increase awareness of our reopening and create a sense of intrigue around the Chicago Magic Lounge. Style and tone: - Elegant, high-quality, sophisticated - Fun, intriguing, mysterious - Genuine, authentic - Retro, yet modern Requirements: Use brand colors/gradient Include tagline "The Magic is Back®" Include our logo and/or name CTA button "learn more" Notes: *Our brand fonts are Andes and Adobe Devanagari, but we do not own the digital rights for these fonts (and frankly, they are difficult to read). We use Josefin Sans and Montserrat on our website, but I'm open to font exploration. *Our logo is beautiful, BUT it is downright evil in smaller formats. I would like to see creative ways to use/adapt our logo for mobile size and/or brand that size in a different way *I am providing you with various images from our theater. Using the images is not necessary, but no stock imagery.
See our website to get a sense of our look/feel - chicagomagiclounge.com We've been shut down due to Covid for the last 15 months and we are now able to reopen in August. I don't know if it's possible to capture the joy and excitement of finally being let off the chain in a banner ad, but if you can, go for it. We are all about misdirection. Guests enter through a fake laundromat and into a beautiful 1930s-style Art Deco lounge. We have craft cocktails and a magician behind the bar performing close-up magic as you enjoy your drinks. Behind a second secret door is our 110-seat cabaret theater and behind that an even more intimate 40-seat close-up room. There are little surprises around every corner. Please keep in mind that the Chicago Magic Lounge is a sophisticated, vintage-style theater and lounge. We are rated #1 in nightlife in Chicago on Trip Advisor. We are not hokey, silly, or cliche. NO RABBITS, NO TOP HATS. We specialize in close-up magic, so no sawing people in half or popping out of boxes.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Banner ad starts at $49.
