Just Judy provides careful, skilled page layout
at a reasonable price.
Batting Basics (218K sample) by John White, is subtitled Science of the Perfect Swing and is aimed at baseball and softball teachers and coaches. Shown are the front and back cover plus several pages including the table of contents, preface, and acknowledgments. The content on these 6-by-9-inch pages is shown centered, but the printed book has wider inside margins and narrower outside margins. This second edition was published in 2011.
Legacy in Words is a memoir (616K sample) published in 2009. Written and illustrated by the late Beth Aaland, it is comprised of autobiographical nonfiction essays plus some fictional stories and poems. Just Judy copy-edited the text, organized the content (which had existed as separate “doodles” and writings tucked away over the years), and suggested the title.
The Community Alliance for Social Awareness (CASA) published a resource handbook (576K sample) for parents in 2003. The front and back covers plus several of the 5.5-by-8.5-inch inside pages of the spiral-bound handbook are shown. (Just Judy also designed CASA’s logo.)
A tri-fold brochure for a dance school (307K) is shown unfolded. (Beware: It’s from 2006, and the content is obsolete!) Valley Dance Theatre has been a Just Judy client since 1993.
The brochure for a concert series (321K) is shown here as four 8.5-by-11-inch pages. Each brochure was printed on (both sides of) an 11-by-17-inch sheet of glossy white paper which was folded first in half, then in thirds for mailing. Just Judy has designed season brochures for Del Valle Fine Arts since 1998.
A tri-fold brochure advertising estate sales (593K) (a fundraiser for a community orchestra) is shown unfolded, as the front and back of an 8.5-by-11-inch sheet.
A tri-fold brochure for a local NOW chapter (188K) is shown with each of its six panels as a separate page.
Sample cards shown (140–304K) are from:
1) Altamont Winds, an ensemble (based near the windy Altamont Pass in California) of musicians who play wind instruments (Just Judy also designed the logo);
2) East Bay Therapy, a company which provided diagnoses and therapy related to speech and language;
3) a guitar-playing singer-songwriter who was interested in jobs as a handyman in addition to music-related work;
4) a fine art photographer;
5) a financial services company (now defunct, with contact information disguised at the client's request);
6) a landscape service (Just Judy also designed the logo).
The dance performance link (420K) shows front and back covers of the program for Valley Dance Theatre’s 25th-anniversary show and sample pages from the program booklet. The May 2005 booklet was printed on double-sided 8.5-by-11-inch sheets of paper, folded, so that each page was 8.5 inches high and 5.5 inches wide. Huyen Tran provided the elephant artwork.
The orchestra performance link (213K) shows a 4-page program. Each program was printed on a 2-sided tabloid-sized sheet of paper, folded to make four 8.5-by-11-inch pages. Just Judy has formatted the concert programs of the Livermore-Amador Symphony since 1992.
This Veterans-Hall gala flyer (288K) was used to publicize a dance that celebrated the reopening of the building after its renovation. The City of Pleasanton, California, celebrated the completion of the renovation in 2007 with a ceremony (for which Just Judy published the program booklet) and a dance. The $19.33 dance admission for couples emphasized that the Hall was originally dedicated in 1933.
The Livermore-Amador Symphony Guild organizes an annual POPS concert (288K). Just Judy designed publicity flyers for these concerts from 1996–2009.
A flyer advertising pitching lessons (132K) is from March 2008.
The Alameda County East branch of the Music Teachers’ Association of California presents an annual piano recital (139K) featuring a talented young artist. Just Judy has published a publicity flyer for each recital since 2002.
The Pleasanton Community Concert Band organizes its family-oriented concerts around various themes—magic, at this 2002 band concert (300K).
The front and back sheets of the visitors guide (695K) to Western Hills Nursery are shown. The guide is presented as a tri-fold brochure. The most time-consuming part of this project has been the development of several editions of the increasingly-accurate map.
A takeout menu (267K) is shown as six pages, but it actually was printed as a tri-fold brochure on a single sheet of paper. Beware: content, including the phone number, is out-of-date in this example from 2009!
An information sheet (76K) was made available to her clients by an esthetician in 2004.
