On Friday a group of students attended the Jostens yearbook planning trip at the Buffalo Zoo. There students were inspired by guest speakers such as Caleb Campbell and the Craft brothers about the importance of yearbooks and designing them. From here students them worked one on one to create next years cover. Student enjoyed the day and we look forward to seeing the book come to life next year.
Believe it or not but the planning for next year’s yearbook has already started! Photography and Yearbook Club students had the opportunity to attend the Jostens’ Spring Yearbook conference held at the Buffalo Zoo. While at the conference students heard from experts in the fields of journalism, layout design and photography.
Students also met one on one with an artist to sketch out next years cover design to coincide with the theme selected. It was amazing to sit down and give our ideas to the artist and watch them create a cover right in front of us. Students have been using Photoshop throughout the year and were very impressed by the knowledge of the software that the artist had and to see him work with it to design a cover from scratch.
Below you will see a sneak peak of next years cover design sketch showcasing the theme of “Unearthed.” The 2018 book will focus on Lyndonville Central School comparing the past to present time. Students have a lot of great ideas that will surely make next year’s book uniquely special. Be sure to remember to order next year’s book but don’t forget there is still time to order the 2017 book as well!
Students also had time to practice their photography skills while exploring the zoo grounds. Overall the experience was wonderful and we were able to get a lot accomplished in a short amount of time.
