Visual Design CS6: Mini-yearbooks

Project Published 4/23/12 Last updated on 5/16/18
A yearbook, or annual, is frequently used to record, commemorate, and highlight a school year. At most institutions, student teams publish yearbooks. Some countries and organizations also publish yearbooks as annual summary reports. In this project, students form teams to develop and create a yearbook. The students create templates of several double-page layouts and create reusable graphics and illustrations to implement thematic and design consistency throughout the yearbook. This is Project 8 in the Visual Design curriculum. Portions of this project map to the Adobe Certified Associate, Visual Communication with Photoshop CS6 objectives.

To view this PDF Portfolio, please save the file to your desktop and open with Acrobat 9 or Adobe Reader 9, or later.
