YEARBOOK THEME/DESIGN ASSIGNMENT
We have been working on creating our yearbook for most of this year and the end is finally in sight. Now, we need to start working on ideas for the book next year.
That being the case, I would like EVERY yearbook student to begin working on a THEME and LAYOUT for the book for the next year. You will be creating a number of pages and layouts that match your theme in yearbookavenue.com. We will be presenting all of these layouts in class and voting on them. The winning design/theme will be used for next year's book.
PLANNING THEME: By MONDAY, APRIL 15, please complete a pencil sketch and write up EXLAINING your theme, why you think it will work for our book next year and what some of the major elements tying the book together will be. This will be a 50 point assignment for this project. All staff will need to first do some extensive research regarding the elements that they would like to use for their theme for next year's book.Your pencil sketch for your page should include all of your layout ideas put onto a piece of paper, showing all elements required below, along with annotation regarding where you received your ideas for your theme. This will be the first graded part of this project.
CREATING THE PAGES:
Each student will need to create new PRACTICE PAGES on yearbookavenue.com. To make your pages, simply log in to yearbookavenue.com and select CREATE> PAGE DESIGN from the home page menu. Once the blank page loads, pull down the menu and click SAVE AS PRACTICE PAGE and save your pages with your name: "LASTNAME_CLUB_PAGE," "LASTNAME_SPORTS_PAGE", etc. You are now ready to begin creating your page.
THE THEME: You are responsible for coming up with a THEME for the yearbook. The THEME is the verbal idea that holds the book together, as well as the design elements that give the pages of the book their own look and style The theme would be carried throughout the book, holding pages and layouts together.
RESOURCES: You can use ANY RESOURCES at your disposal (ESPECIALLY LOOKBOOKS, and other yearbooks, if you wish) create vibrant and interesting yearbook pages with a tightly integrated theme.
THE LAYOUT OF THE BOOK: This year, we had a SUBJECT PAGE book, with separate pages for each teacher, sport, club, etc. We also include some chronological information in strips at the bottom of some of our pages. You can arrange your book however you wish, but your design choices should be clear in your layout of your pages.
