Anonymous asked: What's the name of the font used in your "let's make a yearbook" header?

That would be Helvetica! Rad font, Helvetica. I outlined it in Illustrator and deleted in little insidey parts. Holla!

pretty-pessimist asked: So it's soon time to come up with a new theme for next years book...I don't have any ideas and don't know where to look for inspiration...help?

Yearbook game time!
Check out color: the color matching game, a cool totally nerdy way to pass the time. Try to match hue, saturation, color complements and more. But do it quickly!

Yearbook: for many of us, it's our second home, our second family. We're the kids with the cool cameras and the cool techniques. We're the best photographers, writers and designers on campus. We've got neat computers and neat software, and we've got the ability to capture the entire year for our student body to look back on from now until forever. Our books live on for decades. Everyone will show our production to their kids and their kids' kids.

This is the blog for inspiration, help, venting, and anything and everything else you want it to be. Enjoy, fellow yearbookers yerds!
