One of the first duties of the yearbook staff is to select a theme that reflects their school for this particular year. The theme is a concept that everyone in the school can understand, and realize how it applies to them.
Your yearbook theme and cover should talk about your school — how it’s different from all other schools in your area, in your state and in your country.
What makes everyone proud of your school? What groups shine above all others? What words describe your student body? What concept will help your staff tell the story of the year?
When you’ve answered those questions and others, your theme will emerge. Once you’ve chosen it, you’ll want to discuss graphic elements, photos, words, colors and typography that will reflect the theme.
You will use those elements to unify your book verbally and visually.
A Yearbook theme starts on the cover. Typography, graphics and colors start “the look” for the book and continue to the inside.
Cover designs may include photos, foil applications, silkscreened ink, embossing, grain treatments, colored materials or die cuts. It’s important to create a cover design that visually symbolizes the theme.
These covers were designed by schools in partnership with our Yearbook Design Services team. Browse for inspiration!
