Yearbook design ideas
As I’m working on our 2009 personal yearbook, I’ve been pondering how to display status updates alongside our photos – keeping it as interesting and readable as possible.
Here’s my current draft: create a new blank page for year month and then just have the numbers signifying the day of the month. Below each, show all the status updates on that day. I’m skipping the time information – most of the time this isn’t too important. If there were times which were particularly important, I could move those in. I’m using a different color for my husband’s updates, and I’ll use a different one again for my son’s. A few updates I’m leaving off (links to websites usually) and I’m fixing minor typos as well!
While I had no trouble using Blurb for my son’s photo book, it is a little time consuming pulling in all the status updates and formatting them like this manually. It’d be fantastic if I could set up a style like this, and they all get sucked in magically.
