When setting out to try and make a yearbook, you have a lot of things to consider. For example, Yearbook costs can be a major concern, as can Yearbook layout. Here are a few tips to get you moving in the right direction.
Stick with a Theme
There’s nothing worse than a yearbook that’s all over the place and that doesn’t have a solid theme. This can make the yearbook layout all confused. That’s why it’s important to decide what theme you want and stick with it as much as you possibly can. You can look around online for yearbook ideas and themes since there are a whole lot of them online.
Get Lots of Photos
It’s pretty hard to have too many photos when it comes to designing a yearbook. The yearbook layout could almost always use more photos, and you’ll generally be happy that you have more rather than less. The more you have, the more you can find the best photos from the bunch and get them in the perfect spot on your yearbook. This will go a long way to helping you get everything right.
Another really important thing to do is make sure that you get help. There’s no way you can do the whole thing yourself, even if you’re the main editor. And this doesn’t just mean finding people who want to put their name on the Yearbook for extracurricular credit, it means making sure you get real help. If someone doesn’t want to help you, then find someone who will. And make sure that you get enough people to help or you will be completely overwhelmed. After all, there are a whole lot of things to do on the yearbook. There’s editorial, design, and photographic work to be done. If you don’t have enough photos, you will need to find people to take more. And you don’t want to spend too much time on this yourself since you’ll have plenty of other things that you need to do.
In the end, a yearbook is a way to remember the experience that you all went through, so you will be surprised how people want to help you make sure that you get it right. It’s something that is for everyone and not just you, after all.
