What do you think about this as signage for my case for my adult "con artist" show?

Good job! You might consider something a touch shorter maybe?

"The Honest Con" or something to that affect.

I like having Australia in there because as Australia's Honest Con Man - Nicholas J. Johnson I come up higher in directories!

Oh...Good thinking there. Same reason I have "Albuquerque Magician Robert Bloor"

Excellent.

I think you can't have too much information. It's just a case, so your name and about 2 or 3 words maximum afterwards.

Keep it slogan-simple and not a mouthful.

Think of a shorter word for honest.

I'm not too sure about red ink on blue background though.

I think you need more than just lettering and a picture of dice. Something more like this. But you'd expect me to say that!

So that's where he got his new avatar, huh? I like it.

Nicholas, the link you provided looks great. Now, based on past posts I'm somewhat familiar with what you do and I think that signage looks good. Now, if I didn't know anything about you, the signage would really get my curiosity running high.

Paul - That is some fine signage. But too much detail might not work for a sign this small (breifcase size). I've made the letters of my name yellow and it looks much brighter.

I do like "Australia's Honest Con Man". It gets a better reaction then "con artist" or "Australia's own con man".

The alphabetical title is just a bonus.

(But I have gotten three gigs because of it!)

You could always do something clever with the dice illustration, such as having one with fives on every side, and the other with twos on every side.

Heh heh heh! I like it!

I might also make it a black or very dark brown sign

One thing you will want is readability. You want people to be able to read the sign and get all of the information quickly and easily and recall the information on it. With this in mind, contrast of color is very important for readability purposes.

I also must say that I was thinking along the same lines as Donald. The imagery you use needs to back up and tie directly into what it is you do and are saying you do. If you are the "honest con man", then some sort of imagery that suggests this will only help to strengthen your message and allow people to recall it better.
