Transcript of Yearbook Layout

The dominant photo is the most important picture so it should portray topic of the copy. It is the largest photo on the spread. Using same size photos help to organize pictures. Avoid "trapped" text. Text needs to breath so don't cram it between photos. The main copy is your story telling so it should have lots of room. Captions can go in "blocks", but copy is in columns, usually 2 or 3. A timeline of improvements is a good way to capture an event in entirety. Make sure that the quotes are relevant to the pictures. Cover multiple people to get different opinions on a topic. Make sure that the photos are facing towards the gutter, center of the spread. Expand your horizons, not just covering a certain class or grade. Head shots are good for academics when there isn't a lot of action present. For a mod covering one person, try to incorporate others in the photo or other ways so you cover as many people as possible. Academics are hard to cover photographically so use different angles. Don't rely on your photos to tell your story. So how do I get started? Start with guides. The horizontal goes on one of the blue lines. The vertical one can go anywhere in the constants of a page (within grey brackets). Remember that the "gutter", where the two pages meet, acts as another separation between mods. Only the dominant photo can cross it. Vertical guide Horizontal guide Photos should touch the guides or be the appropriate space away from other photos. Guides are removed when spread is finished. Remember to leave room for the copy and headlines so they have space and aren't an afterthought. Choose your layouts based on how you want to cover your events.
Ex. headshots, order of events, comparison Before you start:
Remember that starting over or changing your spread design is OK! Never get stuck on a design. Maybe it will come in handy on a future spread. Now put in your copy. Try to make the content go to the edges, but it's alright if there is some white space near the corners. Stagger copy ;location so not all of it is in the corners of the spread, but remember the rule about trapped copy. You've completed you layout design!
Now you can add your photos to the spread. Don't be afraid to rearrange if certain photos don't fit well on the spread. Open eDesign (or InDesgin) and follow along as you create a spread of your own.
Choose a topic that you will be "covering" and write down some stories you could cover. Nothing comes easy so practice what you've learn! You will receive a paper with two spreads on it and asked to identify parts of a spread. This is called a bleed photo^ because it "bleeds" off the page. The headline should catch your attention and the subhead should tell you what the copy is informing you about. <This is the subhead.
