Read carefully, because this is important: your font choices have a huge affect on your yearbook, and could make the difference between unreadable paperweight and treasured keepsake.
Are you stuck in a colourful rut? Don’t know your chartreuse from your cerulean? Just what is puce, anyway? (Hint: these are all colours.)
Don’t despair. Choosing colours is easy if you follow a few simple rules.
Wallpaper, notebooks, clothes… as an animal-loving nation we can’t resist a bit of animal print. The good news is Yearbook Hub has everything you need to go wild with your yearbook design too! Animal Print Backgrounds Leopard or Zebra? Pink, blue or green? There’s plenty of choice to make…
Thinking of sticking with plain block colour background in your yearbook? Try taking your leavers’ book design one step further by using patterned backgrounds. Patterns don’t have to be bold and ‘in yer face’ – subtle stripes and profound polkadots are more our bag. We’ve put together a few examples showing you how to use patterned backgrounds in our online editor, Yearbook Hub.
This is one of the best yearbook ideas to get memories and stories from your school years into the yearbook.
Magazine (or Newspaper) articles should not be used to tell the story of your entire time at school. When was the last time you picked up a magazine and read an article which detailed the events of the last seven years of someone’s life? Nor should they be used excessively. They work best if you just include three or four, spaced out through the yearbook.
You have to include loads of pictures in your yearbook. It’s a must. But you don’t have to feature photo pages that are essentially just lots of pictures. You can be way more creative than that.
Photo pages are generally exactly what the title suggests. Pages of photo’s. No comments, no titles, just let the pictures do the talking.
Photo pages are ideal for displaying photos of trips, tutor groups, friendship groups, drama productions, and much much more. They are often some of the most popular pages in the yearbook.
Three steps to putting your photo pages together
If you have a lot of content, a magazine-style yearbook design is a great solution. Either make up your very own unique magazine, or base it on the style of your favourite magazine.
