Business Name

Bat Mitzvah Clubs International

What do you do?

We provide a fun-filled and fulfilling program for public schooling girls who are approaching their 12th birthday (known as Bat Mitzvah) 'coming of age'. Consists of monthly club meetings with lots of fun, food, and friends...with meaningful insightful discussions, activities, crafts, games and trips as part of discovering 'who i am,' giving the girls a great feeling about themselves, empowering them to be confident, proud jewish women; exploring their heritage, history, customs, identity, etc. This program addresses all of a young teen's needs at this pivotal time in their lives, while imparting to them morals and values in a way that they love it. We facilitate the Club Leaders user-friendly attractive materials, and we enhance the Club Members' experience by creating exciting educational/fun materials. Exclusive to girls - moms are sometimes invited! - this is a club for girls, starring girls, run by girls. We are global and aim to get the attention of all modern 11-12 year old girls who are jewish, but know absolutely nothing about their jewish identities. See us on the web at

How many pages of print design do you need?

cover of book and a few design variations for the inside pages which are empty, meant for the kids to journal and scrapbook on.

List the size requirement(s) for your print design

6.75" wide, 8.5" high.
give or take an inch, can change if necessary.

What is your industry?

Children's Extra Curricular Programs

Describe the target audience for your print design

11-12 year old modern (mostly American) girls all around the globe, who like a sophisticated feel with a touch of fun.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your print design?

1. We think you're at a great age, filled with power and energy.
2. You matter to us!
3. We know you have lots to write about: while being in the BMC where you're discovering many new things about yourself, getting to know the real YOU.
4. We know you like to be regarded as older than your real age.
5. We know exactly what you're thinking/feeling/wanting/missing/liking/disliking etc. - we 'get' you!
6. We know the styles you go for.

What print design styles do you like?

styles that appeal to tween girls around the world, mostly American. A classy, sophisticated feel with a touch of great color and fun. Although I like denim, I don't want the grungie look. It can be a classy denim, can be a different color denim than the usual blues (printer will send me swatches of what's available...). I like nice effects, such as raised lettering or raised images. Maybe something glittery. Depends on the design you come up with. Want something quite different, novel, from the usual.

What colors do you want to see in your print design?

To see colors to pull from, take a look at the Member's Kit. (all the files are in the sendspace links below). This will give you an idea of which colors to use for this Journal cover. This new Journal is an important part of the Kit. (The old journal is the orange striped book with flower). Also see Kit Handouts to get a closeup of the 7"x10" cards which are also part of the Kit.

I like classy, fresh, happy colors (but not childish).

What colors do you NOT want to see in your print design?

nothing serious, dark, old/adult, drab, boring.

What adjectives should best describe your print design?

sophistication, class, fun, fresh, interesting, different.

How will you use the print design?

This is going to be a cover for a very popular BMC Journal that 11/12 yr old girls around the world will be using. I want it to be something that will lay around a living room and anyone passing by and picks it up, will say: "wow, this looks great! this program looks phenomenal. So professional! I must tell (my daughter, my niece, my friend, neighbor) about this!"
The girls/families keep this journal for many years to come.
It's got to be really really special looking.

What content must be included in the print design?

The only words on the cover should be:

Also, the logo.

Maybe the name of the org: Bat Mitzvah Clubs International

The rest is design.

Brief updates

I uploaded a sample of 'raised effect' which i like.
By estyfrim on 23-Mar-12 2:03 p.m. GMT
Feedback from kids is telling us that they'd rather not have the word 'journal' on the cover. Just something quiet and classy, with some raised (embossed) design.
By estyfrim on 26-Mar-12 1:12 a.m. GMT
Based on the designs that are being entered, we see that we're looking for something simple, understated, with a light touch of imagery such as a floral or other type of pattern on one part of the cover, not all over the cover. some of the design or the logo will be raised.
By estyfrim on 29-Mar-12 1:48 p.m. GMT
just not hitting on the right design yet, it's gotta to be perfect for the target age group
By estyfrim on 29-Mar-12 1:49 p.m. GMT
Don't use the word Journal or My Journal - only the logo.

I am off for the Passover holiday, and will resume with this project after the holiday, on Monday April 16.
By estyfrim on 16-Apr-12 4:36 p.m. GMT
Am back. As you can see, there are lots of entries but am still left frustrated, looking for the one that really catches me. I just uploaded 4 folders containing pictures i took in the book store of various journal covers that caught my eye for one reason or another. I would love to see some ideas based on the classy debossed or embossed design, or something fun and colorful filled with words. I'm leaning towards a light orange colored background. Hope someone catches my eye! Much thanks, looking forward to new ideas. Please send questions if you have any.
By estyfrim on 17-Apr-12 11:14 a.m. GMT
i'm having a really hard time nailing down the right design for this cover! how about something similar to the uploaded folder of ideas 'Journal Cover 1', a more simple but very classy debossed idea?
By estyfrim on 17-Apr-12 9:22 p.m. GMT
I am so unsettled with this project, but all the entries help direct it! My critique-board (made up of teenagers) is leaning towards a design that is mostly debossed, like the uploaded Files 5 and 6 (File name Deboss 1 and Deboss 2), florals are fine, but they should be younger in feel.

Or -

Possibly, similar to File 7 (File name Words) - a debossed arrangement of words (which I will provide) either on the whole page, or part of the page.

The main thing is: debossed, and classy with a touch of 'young.'

Please note that we don't want butterflies - as beautiful as they are, we don't want them in the design :)
By estyfrim on 2-May-12 3:17 a.m. GMT
I would like to gurantee this project.
