We were very happy to see that we were recently featured on WhatsHappening.com.ph for our big shows at Festival Supermall on December 10th & 11, 2015.
Although still in the development stage, we are very close to launching the new joeconrad.com website – and it is going to be super beautiful!
Even though our old website design served us well, it has started to look a bit dated this past year or so as the new mobile revelation took off. Our previous site design was not responsive (with the exception of this Blog) and the new upcoming design will change all that. It will re-size and will look great on any viewing medium.
Under the guidance of my lead graphic designer Marty, we are still putting the finishing touches on it (as well as implementing the programming, testing, etc). We hope to launch it in the coming weeks and of course will make an official announcement here & all relevant social media outlets.
After many years of using my Joe Conrad personal profile on Facebook for promoting professional activities, we have now launched the Illusionist Joe Conrad Facebook Page.
A big thank you to all of you who have already stopped by and supported us there. 🙂
A SPECIAL NOTE: From this point forward we will be posting all relevant Illusionist Joe Conrad news & business items over on the official Facebook Page (and on the official joeconrad.com site & blog, of course), rather than on my Joe Conrad personal Facebook profile. My personal profile will be reserved for items of a personal/family nature only.
In you haven’t had a chance to stop by yet, please check it out & ‘Like‘ us. It will be very appreciated…
A serious article by Hossein Derakhshan for all to read & absorb, comparing what the Internet has become compared to just a few years ago.
The original prototype design of the Illusionist Joe Conrad ‘Magic Set’ for AIA Insurance in Thailand.
We are currently branding these for a couple of new clients, as well.
At long last (and after several years of traveling back & forth) we are happy to officially finally announce the opening of our third production facility within Asia. It is located in Metro Manila, Philippines.
A shot of our original production facility in Bangkok, Thailand.
Located within the heart of Pasay, this new facility will allow us to store additional illusions and rehearse shows accordingly (as well as have the local sales & admin offices necessary) for this hot and emerging market. We now have easy access to all the main event locations and hotels in the capital region of the Philippines.
With a larger portion of our work now happening in this Casino & Entertainment hub (second only to Macau in the region), this new & additional base will allow us to serve our clients better – while being able reduce overhead for show logistics. Also, it will allow all of our team to have a more stress-free environment with this more permanent Philippines base.
In addition to this new Philippines marketing offices and production location, Illusionist Joe Conrad still maintains our Bangkok, Thailand & USA facilities.
Lots of travel and excitement – as always!
At long last I have finally updated the look of this ‘Blog’ section of the JoeConrad.com website. The previous theme I tried recently had a lack of updates from the company (due to them going out of business) which caused design and technical problems for posting. Thus no new content appearing for a while!
I think this new look looks good for the Blog and is easy to view on all devices – both desktop PC’s & mobile phones. Something all entertainers and small business owners have to keep in mind when updating & designing their own personal websites.
And for those of you that care about those sort of things, the WordPress theme I am using is called Mantra. It is designed by the good people over at Cryout Creations.
Hope everyone enjoys the new look and we will keep refining things as we go along.
A big thank you to all of my fans and friends while I have been recuperating from my recent back pain… I appreciate all the notes, cards, gifts and emails I received!
It just came out of the blue when I woke up one morning… WOW – the pain was intense and all I could do was to lie in bed and take pain meds until the pain subsided. It put me out for several weeks. (Actually nearly a month!) And had to cancel several high-profile shows…
I am finally 100% better and my doctor has given me a clean bill of health. Am so happy to be back to a normal routine and performing full-time again.
I will never take my health for granted again! 🙂
A very Merry Christmas 2014 to friends, family, fans and everyone from Illusionist Joe Conrad.
