Just Ducky Spring 2011 Catalog

For the Spring 2011 Just Ducky catalog we went to a 8″ x 10″ format. This enabled us to include some larger photos! Throughout the catalog clothing is shown either on models or as flats. Flats can be a great way to clearly show the front/back views of a garment, but of course everyone’s favorite images are the model shots. Cute, cute, and cuter.

For any of you that have tried to take photos that include a number of children, you know it is near impossible to have every child smiling in each photo. Professional shoots are no different, but through Photoshop magic (where magic=detailed work by yours truly) heads, bodies, or faces can be swapped to arrive at a photo that is, well, picture perfect!

Just Ducky Fall 2010 Catalog

I look forward to working with Just Ducky each season on their print catalog. It is a fun whirlwind of photo shoot days (with John Warner of Warner Photography), fabrics, trims, designs and styles.

For the Fall 2010 catalog we incorporated flowers, candy, crayons, ornaments and other 3D objects to the layout pages for a fun feel. We also balanced full page images with product shots and design details to really give a feel for the Just Ducky style. (Excerpted pages from the catalog are shown.)

As a custom manufacturer of classic clothing for kids, Just Ducky gives parents, grandparents and kids the ability to design clothing that is unique to their style. Each season they offer a line of styles, fabrics, trims and designs that can be mixed and matched for unique garments. The catalog serves both to provide an overview of all the various items that can be blended, as well as examples of the great combinations presented at home shows.
