One of my friends is a relatively famous magician and has been aspiring to create his own deck of cards for a while now. He has his own ideas, but what he needs, however, are the talents of a designer in order to make this come to fruition.

He said that he would take a look at the work of anyone I refer to him and if he is satisfied, is willing to discuss payment (he's a cool guy, completely legitimate and quite a public figure, so he won't do anything underhand). He will also give you coverage via his network to help you promote your work. He explicitly stated that he is looking in particular for 'talented unknown designer(s)' (though even if you aren't unknown, feel free to ask).

His plans are to put this deck through a crowd-funding project (probably Kickstarter).

If there are any people that are interested, make a post or send me a PM and I'll forward his contact details to you. Preferably posts, because it will show up on the news feed.

That sounds like cheesing the designer IMO, unless the paycheck is pretty nice. And by nice, I mean a % of sales made.

His specific wording was:

Quoted:
I'm willing to pay, but I'm not exactly sure how much yet. It would be great if you can get me in touch with whoever you know. I'll take a look at his work and if I like it I'll ask him what amount of money would make him happy to work on the project. He will also receive a lot of self promotion and get a lot of eyes on his work.


So I'm assuming the rate is flexible at the least. He's a reasonable guy, I'm sure he's open to doing it by %. But that's up to the designer to discuss, I'm just the advertiser.

For this, you'll have to speak directly to him. From what he told me of the project a while ago, he had some very concrete ideas of what he wanted to do.

However, I should warn you that atm he's pushing really hard on another project on Kickstarter right now:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/764619918/the-foundations-of-card-magic?ref=nav_search

So he might not reply. But if you send him a message and let me know, I can PM him to take a look. Tell him 'Long sent you'.
