ACS Yearbook: Must Dos

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!

 

-        Check web site http://acsyearbook.tripod.com regularly for new additions.

-        Make sure all the events you are in charge of are covered (you are graded on these).

-        Weekly graded assignment: Each student has to take at least 20 candid photos for HS, 20 candid photos for MS, and 20 candid photos for Staff per week. These should be downloaded into each student’s own account by Friday along with descriptions for those photos (date taken, place, who is in the pic, what were they doing?)

-        Check the back of the door for new things to do.

-        Write down, on the computer problems form (back of door), what kind of computer problems you are having.

-        Bring your “Idea Book” and “Yearbook Fundamentals” every time to class. You might be given, at any time, specific on-the-spot-assignments for which you will need to use your own book.

-        Take your yearbook folder out of the filing cabinet at the beginning of class and return it before you leave.

-        Log out the other class’s account and log on yearbook class’s.

-        Access the folders yearbook06 and/or photos06 (according to your needs) and place them on your desktop.

-        At the end of class, put everything you worked on in the folder allotted to you under yearbook06.

-        Log out before you leave and place your chair back in its place: make sure nothing is left behind and everything is back in place (this is part of your participation grade; i.e. if someone else needs to log you off, to throw your papers, and to put your chair back in place, there is no way for you to get 4/4 on your participation grade).

 

Before you start working on a spread:

  1. Go to the folder allotted to you in yearbook06 shared folder.
  2. Create a subfolder for the spread you are working on.
  3. Create another subfolder for the “Edited Photos”
  4. Go through the photos06 folder.
  5. Choose the photos that you want to use on your spread.
  6. Copy those photos on the “Edited Photos” folder you created.
  7. Go on Photoshop and, before you use those photos on your InDesign spread, do the following for each photo:

-        Image => mode = CMYK

-        Image => size = after unchecking “resample” => size 300 dpi

-        Save as => TIFF

  1. Once you have modified the photos, start working on your spread:

-        Make sure that, when you open a new document, you set the page size to A4 instead of Letter.

-        Make sure you have 8 columns on each page (vertically + horizontally)

-        Make sure the horizontal guides go from margin to margin.

-        Make sure you have an eyeline per spread.

-        Make sure you have a very effective DOMINANT photo per spread (20% of the spread: at least 21/2 to 3 times the size of the next biggest photo element; the dominant photo should mostly consist of individuals and pairs, unless you think it is essential that you use a group photo as a dominant). The dominant photo should touch the top or bottom margin, or even both.

-        Do not put 2 photos of the same shape next to each other on a spread.

-        Make sure at least 1 photo bleeds on each page of a spread (never bleed top or bottom).

-       Make sure the photos are placed in a way that makes the reader look towards the gutter (all people in photos should face towards the gutter => concentrate everything to the middle). Work from the Middle Out, not outside in!

-       Group photos and individual portraits should not go across the gutter. (p71)

-        Place from 5 to 9 photos on each spread. Diversify shapes and size (avoid squares!) to create contrast.

-       Make sure you stick to the fonts and font sizes agreed upon:(cf.Columbia pp81-82)

         Copy/body: Bookman size 9-10-11 (Opening & Closing dividers: size 12-14 - Theme copy: 12-16)

         Captions: Helvetica size 8-9

         Headlines:
-   Primary: Bellevue or Nuptial?  Size 42-72
-   Sub headlines: Eurostile size 16-24

-        The Type we use on the cover we should use throughout the book.

-        Indent: 3 spaces, not 5.

-        No comma before and in a series. Titles are italicized, not underlined. Use smart quotes (“ ”) not ("").

-       Make sure that, on every spread, you respect the following:

         Contrast

         Proximity

         Alignment

         Repetition

-        Make sure that Sports Headlines are NOT in a script/decorative font => ?

-        Make sure you ONLY use CMYK colors!!

-       Copy:

         Make sure that every copy starts with a “Catchy opening sentence

         Follow the same Approach throughout the book: Then vs. Now

         Start with the most important and end with the least important (so that, in case we need to cut out a part of the copy for lack of space, we end up cutting out the least important)

         Every copy needs to have an angle: the point you want to make!

         Check the following web site: http://www.theonion.com (parody)

-       Headlines: Do not use past tense when writing headlines! Only present tense. Use alliterations / figures of speech; make them funny, witty.

-       Headlines: Start with a big letter at the top of the story.

-       Choose headlines that match the dominant photo/story.

-       Captions: Mini stories; minimum 3 to 4 sentences; all captions should have the same size throughout the book. Every caption should include the following: who, what, where, when, why + How + a direct quote (we can start with it and it should add new info to the caption; if everybody could say the same quote then it needs to be changed).

-       You need a caption for each photo- If there are 7 people or fewer in the caption, you need to identify them all. If there is a big crowd, identify none.

-       Captions: the first sentence is in the present tense and the rest in the past tense.

-       Captions should be adjacent to the photos they identify.

-       We can put a caption inside the photo if there is dead space. We can group captions (clockwise from left/top left…)

-       For each caption provide a title that mimics the main headline.

-       DO NOT MAKE FUN OF PEOPLE!

-       NO PERSONAL OPINION! Interview and quote people (whoever we quote can give their opinion)!

-       Make sure that every element on the spread fits exactly into the internal lines of the columns and guides.

-       All white space should be to the outside of the layout.

-       “White space is the most sophisticated thing in yearbook”

-       Give credit to whoever writes the article (we shall try to put the author’s name at the bottom of every spread).

-       Borders = 4 picas

Mug Shot Pages:

         Page Layout for Seniors, Grade 8 students, and staff:

         5 columns

         6 guides

         0p5 gutter for both

         Page Layout for Grades 11-10-9-7-6:

         6 columns

         7 guides

         0p5 gutter for both


- Bleed= 0.125 in

-        File => document presets : to put the same format on all computers

-       1 inch = 6 picas

-       Overheard comments in classrooms-

-       Get the readers involved in the book: Games: ex: match the tattoo with the person

-       On people’s pages: choose one or 2 people from the list and interview them.

-       Discover who I am: clothes kids wear to school

-       Body language?

-       You think you know…. But you have no idea

-       Use idioms

-       What is a yearbook about? (we can include in our book)

-       Choice: how many of you would…. (+ number of people interviewed)

-       NO 2 spreads alike: vary the layout of spreads!

-        Group shots: add info graph => who is the adviser, how many members, when do they meet….

-       Brag about (mods)

-       Gone with the Old

-       WOW Inducing Designs!! Never settle for the just ok!

-       Visual and verbal connection: hook the reader to the content; tie the visual and verbal together.

-       Do not use graphic elements without any purpose! Use graphics to:

o       Unify

o       Separate

o       Direct

o       Emphasize

-       Ask international students to write at least one sentence in their native language.
