  • 2019 El DiabloHinsdale Central High SchoolHinsdale, Illinois

    Theme: "It's a Great Day to be a Red Devil"
    Advisers: Erin Palmer, Lesley Nagle
    Editors: Ella Farrell, Saguna Raina
    Walsworth representative: Mary Slater - CJE

    "It’s a Great Day to be a Red Devil" is a phrase that dates back to a former Hinsdale Central football coach who taught from 1983-2006. He would say, “It’s a great day to be alive and a Red Devil,” grateful for the community, school and school traditions. Since then, the phrase has become a school mantra, printed on planners, seen on phone cases and heard daily over the announcements. So the El Diablo staff took the theme and created a positivity-infused book centered around all the reasons it is so great to be a Red Devil.

    Let’s start with the index – that crowded, jammed-full index that had every one of the 2,776 students in it plus faculty. You’d be hard-pressed to find names with only one page number listed; most have a minimum of two and many more than that. Most spreads contained a sidebar with quotes explaining it’s a great day to be a Red Devil because… and the pages were peppered with decorated doodle quotes with some variation of what the student was doing for their horns – race for your horns, shout, perform, prepare, apply, volunteer, jam out, debate, etc.

    Ultimately, they were all about expressing their role in their school community. In a difficult year where the school faced budget cuts, the yearbook made a fun and whimsical yearbook, reminiscent of a personal notebook, filled with memories, hand-drawn doodles and sketches, photos and unique ways to include the whole community.

  • 2019 AftermathPalm Harbor University High SchoolPalm Harbor, Florida

    Theme: "To Be Honest"
    Adviser: Judy Cannady - CJE
    Editors: Chloe Ballestero, Anna Tam
    Walsworth representative: Sabrina Schmitz - CJE

    The Aftermath staff took the theme “To Be Honest” and gave a raw, honest and unfiltered look at their school. To accomplish this, they featured a number of personal mini-profiles, confession quotes as modular packages and variations of the phrases "to be honest," "like truthfully," "we can’t lie," "truth be told," "if we’re being honest," etc. in the headlines and copy.

    The headline packages were solid bars with transparent letters, revealing the image behind it, which still played well into the theme of revealing the truth. Plenty of modular coverage kept spreads interesting and increased coverage, because an honest depiction requires full representation of the student body.

    A fun surprise was the homecoming tip-in that revealed the homecoming spirit days and the homecoming court royalty. Chronological coverage by week kept the book moving and allowed multiple topics to be covered in a spread, showing how the week would be remembered.

  • 2019 RaiderGulliver Preparatory SchoolMiami, Florida

    Theme: "Truth"
    Adviser: Monica Rodriguez - CJE
    Editors: Vanessa Rosales, Nicole Schwyn
    Walsworth representatives: Veronika Levine - CJE, Tamera Moore

    "Truth" is an abstract theme, but it worked perfectly to capture Gulliver Prep in an authentic manner. The staff started thinking about why decisions were made, traditions were started, policies put in place – the true story behind each one. But it’s not just decisions and events, every person at the school had a true story to tell, and each person had their own truth – no two were a clone. This led to many personal profiles for a true, full-coverage book.

    The subtle theme implementations for “Truth” stood out, like the straight lines and the color palette of CMYK that stripped away the excess fluff and revealed the basic building blocks of color. The design was visually uncluttered and clean as well as modern and bold. Excellent font choices played well with the design. Striking photography captured true moments in the year, preserved now for history.

    The truth of the year was documented, from a coach’s snorting French Bulldogs he brought to campus to the loss of curly fries for lunch, and while it varied between triumph and struggle, it’s a story that is all their own.

  • 2019 The ViewTimberview Middle SchoolFort Worth, Texas

    Theme: "All In"
    Adviser: Jennifer Bass
    Editor: Jamison Lee
    Walsworth representative: Jill Chittum - MJE

    Timberview Middle School students, and particularly The View staff love their school and wanted to find a way to express how invested they were in their school. What better theme than "All In?"

    Within the design, pages were filled with diagonal lines and items tilted on their axis. Headlines and modular packages were filled with the words “All” and “In,” like “All Style,” “In Tune,” “All New Faces,” “In the Bag” and “All Packed Up.” They laced their pages with heavy doses of purple and silver, their school colors, which infused the pages with a sense of school pride.

    The staff’s ability to fit an impressive number of students onto each spread is commendable. Though the book is 136 pages, the index shows the vast majority of names have multiple pages listed, getting the students “all in” to the book. This middle school staff consistently displays high school level journalistic skills, and we look forward to seeing their 2020 book.

  • 2019 AerieMarjory Stoneman Douglas High SchoolParkland, Florida

    Theme: "It All Depends"
    Adviser: Sarah Lerner - CJE
    Editors: Marian Lobaton, Daniela Ortiz-Machado, Rain Valladares
    Walsworth representatives: Veronika Levine - CJE, Tamera Moore

    The high school experience all depends on the choices one makes. Those choices have the power to define, so the Aerie staff chose to explore them, starting with their yearbook cover selection - since three options were available. More than just choices though, they recognized it all depends on your perspective, how you respond, who you are, your feelings, your level of involvement, etc.

    Three primary colors were dominant – red, blue and yellow – and often presented themselves in three circles that evoked an ellipsis feel, though the circles were prevalent throughout the book’s design. Theme-oriented modular packages included “It all depends on…” with students filling in their answer and “Have Your Say.” The lighthearted whimsical font helped keep the book lighthearted and playful, an intentional choice by the staff.

    One of the unexpected gems in the book was including 14 therapy service dogs at the end of the underclassmen portraits. These dogs also attended school alongside their human owners.

  • 2019 LaunchpadApollo Middle SchoolHollywood, Florida

    Theme: "Echoes"
    Adviser: Erik Stachowiak
    Editor: Hailey Diaz
    Walsworth representative: Sarah Burker

    This year marked Apollo Middle School’s 50th anniversary, so in a nod to it, they chose the theme "Echoes." The generations that came before them influenced who students are today like echoes from the past, but Apollo was also creating ripple waves that would echo through the future.

    Visually, echoes took shape with a series of lines, reminiscent of soundwaves in a straight line, and circles. The opening divider used a great photo that has echoing circles in it to reiterate the graphic theme. Cyan and magenta were the primary colors paired together in gradients throughout their book, vibrant and bold, just like their students. The stark contrast of the colors against a black background on the cover gave the Launchpad a modern, trendy vibe. Spectacular middle school photography made the colors pop on the page even more. Specific words were emphasized with magenta and a contrasting font in the stories.

    The staff explained that while all can hear an echo, only a few create echoes. Their goal was for this book to have a lasting effect, honoring their legacy while building onto it as well.

  • 2019 The Round-UpWoodland Junior High SchoolFayetteville, Arkansas

    Theme: "It's Bigger Than Us"
    Adviser: Andrew Young - CJE
    Editors: Nicole Abram, Hadley Humphry, Mia Kieklak, Jaycee Petrone
    Walsworth representative: Jenny Olson

    Woodland Junior High School saw changes ahead in 2019 as the school district announced that their school mascot would be changing. Junior high is known as a time of self-discovery, and while they had been known as the Cowboys for quite some time, they knew their identity was more than just a mascot. The Woodland Junior High identity was bigger than them.

    They incorporated this idea into the titles for their division pages with "it’s brighter" for student life and academics, "it’s tougher" for sports, "it’s bolder" for people and "it’s greater" for ads and index. This exceptional junior high brought top-notch writing and focused on improved student photography this year that once again made this book a standout.

    The Woodland staff added interesting modular packages to keep a visual variety on the pages, particularly on people pages that can feel monotonous if not broken up. Shades of blue and orange on long horizontal or vertical bars created a sense of unity on spreads and gave the book a cohesive look. We know the skills demonstrated by these students will grow bigger as they go on to great things in high school and beyond.

  • 2019 OlympianWilliamsville North High SchoolWilliamsville, New York

    Theme: "Here & Now"
    Advisers: Kaitlin Curcio, Erin DeVantier
    Editors: Serena Leatherbarrow, Samantha Wutz
    Walsworth representative: Katie Smith

    The 2019 Olympian was a 50th anniversary book for the Williamsville North staff and they chose the theme “Here & Now” to reflect both the relevance of the events of the current school year and the history of the school’s past 50 years.

    This special edition is represented with a classic golden luminaire linen cover, laser cut to show through to the present day Williamsville North students on the front endsheet. Numerous spreads throughout the book feature black and white mods that call back to noteworthy moments from the school’s past.

    But as it should be, the bulk of the attention is focused on the 2018-19 school year, with coverage broken up into traditional sections: student life, athletics and people. Division pages feature a large, dominant action photo with the subject framed inside a gold box, accentuated at the bottom of the page by a trio of smaller black and white images, again lending itself to the book’s historic feel.

  • 2019 TrailNorman High SchoolNorman, Oklahoma

    Theme: "Between the Lines"
    Adviser: Kerry Friesen
    Editor: Brittan Choate
    Walsworth representative: John Gearhart - CJE

    "Between the Lines" could have easily become another cliché theme, but Norman High School managed to avoid that. It’s impossible to use the theme without implementing lines into your design, but the Trail staff avoided letting the lines define their design. Their coverage is what really shines. Take a look at just a few of the unique spreads you’ll see in the yearbook’s pages:

    The Great Gnome Hunt. A world history class trip to Japan. Being named the botball world champions. The meatball club’s meatball cookoff to name the next Meatballer Supreme. The Native American club festival. Pi Day festivities. A teacher accepted to the NASA summer program. The medieval fair. Sports spreads included ones dedicated to trainers and Special Olympics.

    “We know that every school has many of the same features and events,” the staff wrote in the colophon. “We wanted to focus on what makes those events specifically memorable for the students here, whether that be the history behind the event or the originality of this year in particular. We wanted to pull the theme through visually using several different design elements, but without being too literal.”

    With their school color orange used as a unifying color along with several other eye-catching shades and modern font selections, Norman High School put together an impressive display, proving that Norman, Oklahoma, is anything but normal.

    Theme: "It's Just What We Do"
    Adviser: Jamie Gumina
    Editors: Kinsley Manns, Ellie Magera
    Walsworth representative: John Kelley

    Traditions and school pride are important to students at Liberty High School. They expect to win in athletics and succeed in academics and extracurriculars. As the editors of the Spectator wrote in the opening of their 2019 edition, “...we have the stats, students and spirit to back it up. Some may be surprised, but it’s just what we do.”

    The theme phrase is first seen on the cover, and it’s an interesting combo of color and fonts. All six of the book’s theme colors, ranging from Sailboat Blue to Sunset Orange to Fruit Punch, are used on the words in the phrase, and then throughout the book on headlines and graphics.

    The coverage is chronological and mostly sticks to the standard highlights of a Liberty High school year, but excels when it ventures out to the stories that made the 2019 school year unique, such as fans starting a new bell tradition at football games or the wrestling team having three state champions for the first time in school history.

  • 2019 LanceFairview High SchoolBoulder, Colorado

    Theme: "You're gonna..."
    Adviser: Claire-Maria Broaddus
    Editors: Kara Stepanik, Jivan West
    Walsworth representative: Andrew Ross

    With their theme “You’re gonna...” the editors of the 2019 Lance do an outstanding job of conveying how overwhelming life can get during a normal high school year. They wrote in the opening, “Our thoughts became an infinite to-do list. There were so many goals and expectations we had.”

    Each chronological section of the Lance begins with a unique four-page “opener.” The first spread features a full-spread image with a variation of the theme phrase along the bottom (you’re gonna... start fresh, you’re gonna... work hard, you’re gonna... freak out). The following spread is highlighted by a bright graphic indicating the season (Fall into Fairview, Is it really Spring?), along with a memorable student quote and photo from the year.

    Another consistent theme element that ties many of the spreads together is the use of angled lines, clustered together into different shapes and placed around many of the headlines and captions.

  • 2019 PantherH.B. Plant High SchoolTampa, Florida

    Theme: "It's the Only Way We Know"
    Adviser: Christina Porcelli
    Editors: Courtney Chalmers, Lauren Rose
    Walsworth representative: Sabrina Schmitz - CJE

    With a history of academic and athletic success, Plant High School students are used to being proud. Maybe even a little braggy. The editors of the 2019 Panther admitted as much in the book’s colophon, and explained that’s where their theme idea came from. “...we thrive because it is all we have ever known. We are successful because we do not know anything different.”

    Certainly a bold statement, and the editors knew it would need a bold design. That’s why readers will find bold, all-caps type treatments on all of the book’s headlines. The school colors are black and gold, and that gold is tweaked into more of a bright, vibrant yellow and becomes the book’s primary theme color.

    The coverage is standard chronological, covering a normal year at Plant High School – filled with stories of accomplishment. One very nice touch – a series of profile spreads (indicated by their yellow background) showcased specific Plant students and how they stood out from the crowd during this school year.

  • 2019 RetrospectLiberty Christian AcademyLynchburg, Virginia

    Theme: "Live in the Now."
    Adviser: Amber Chestnut
    Editor: Hailey Jones
    Walsworth representative: Brooke Smith

    The editors of the 2019 Retrospect wanted to make sure their readers didn’t “get caught up in either the past or the future” as it’s so easy to frequently do, especially for a teenager. This book was all about what it was like to just “Live in the Now” during one great year at Liberty Christian Academy.

    Each of the division pages follows the same pattern – a large, fun, vibrant student life photo framed inside a white box introduced on the cover, accompanied by a quote in big, block text, providing another example of someone at Liberty Christian “living in the now.”

    The coverage does a good job of keeping the focus on LCA students and their lives, while the spreads are clean and easy to read, making good use of white space. A few repeating theme elements bring the Retrospect some consistency – large quotation mark graphic indicates pull quotes, background colors are used to help sidebars stand out and the ubiquitous white box is used on top of photos to tie everything together.

  • 2019 Wah’kon-tahWestlake High SchoolWestlake Village, California

    Theme: "There's More"
    Adviser: Dinah Emmons
    Editors: Amanda Hacker, Jordan Hossini
    Walsworth representative: Michelle DiSimone - CJE

    The theme “There’s More” was originally intended to express how there’s more to every student than what you see or assume. But the theme quickly became more personal when there was more to the year than they anticipated with a devastating tragedy followed by raging wildfires that began the next day.

    The book explored how there’s “more strength, more determination, more power” inside of them, and there’s still more to discover. Divider pages kept their color choices simple – black and white photos with a red accent and no stories. But there was more color on the pages between, with each page taking its own accent color, and more stories. Lines running off the page graphically symbolized there was more to say than what the page could contain.

    Headlines could often be found in the middle of the spread, surrounded by the photos, captions, stories and quotes that told more than a headline ever could. One spread played off the theme with a "More Than Just Coworkers" spread, describing the close relationships between faculty. Showstopper fonts completed this package and showed there’s more to the Wah’kon-tah yearbook.

    Theme: "Ins & Outs"
    Advisers: Alyssa Boehringer - CJE, Curtis Christian
    Editors: Sydney Anderson, Lexi Harris, Kayla Thompson
    Walsworth representative: Jill Chittum - MJE

    McKinney High School was in for some big changes in the 2018-2019 school year, and they needed to figure out how to express the ins and outs of their school. They had 50 new staff members at the school, a new stadium and a new performing arts center. The opening copy is thoughtfully detailed – the first spread repetitiously uses the word “in” and the second spread repetitiously uses the word out in the theme copy. “What we were in for,” “We waited in” and “We all rushed into.” At McKinney, they were all in.

    But even when trucks pulled out, students piled out, called out, ventured out and came out to the dance, the one thing they could be sure of was to never count them out. Throughout the rest of the book, The Lion staff meticulously executed the theme using ampersands, duotones (that pop OUT), triangular arrows on sidebars (to explain what’s going on IN the photo), "& Next" mods on spreads, a plexiglass cover to sneak peek what’s INside the book and gatefolds as dividers that fold OUT to preview what’s IN the next section. Nothing was overlooked and no detail was too small.

    The tip of the ampersand on the cover even pointed to a student featured inside. The staff stayed true to school colors with blue and gold prominent, making the reader proud to attend McKinney or wish they did.

    Theme: "Same Kind of Different"
    Advisers: Leland Mallett - CJE, Rachel Dearinger
    Editor: Breanne Jackson
    Walsworth representative: Jill Chittum - MJE

    “We are the same” the endsheets began. Students lived the same experiences, but each in their own way, different from anyone else. “We’re the Same Kind of Different” it ends.

    While the 2019 edition of The Arena emphasized that Legacy students attended the same classes, shared the same mascot, studied the same material all during the same year, each did so differently, and Legacy cares about those differences. The student life section began with a spread about the ways they were almost the same, followed by a spread about the ways they celebrated their differences.

    A simple color palette of their school red along with black, white and gray was one way they showed unity throughout the book. The classic serif font had a timeless feel while the white space and line elements on the page kept it modern. One of the most fascinating theme implementations came in the form of a customized cover option. Students had the option to choose the photo they wanted printed on the main cover photo so that each cover was different in the same way, just like their school.

    Something happened at Shawnee Mission North High School in 2019, and the Indian staff wanted to make sure their students remembered. And it wasn’t just one thing. They wanted students to remember all the little things, like no school on Wednesdays in February because of the snow days, eating lunch in the rose garden and prom in March.

    Each divider had a "Here’s What Happened" description and a "Here’s What’s Next" preview that played into the theme. Many spreads also included a "So Here’s How It Happened" module. The staff kept the design simple with plenty of breathing room on the pages, a move that allowed them to better direct the reader’s attention where they wanted.

    Theme: "It All Comes Back to You"
    Advisers: Susan Massy, Wes Mikel
    Editors: Tatum Goetting, Wairimu Mbogori
    Walsworth representative: John Kelley

    This was a 50th anniversary yearbook, but the anniversary did not take center stage. Shawnee Mission Northwest is and always has been about their students; they are what has made the school great for 50 years, so the yearbook focused on them. However, a ribbon of nostalgia wove itself throughout the book.

    The theme “It All Comes Back to You” was nuanced and multidimensional. You could look at it as it all come back to you, because at the end of the day and 50 years, it’s all about you, the student. In 50 more years, this book will make it all come back. The sights, the sounds, the smells, the memories, the people, the feeling – everything that made the high school years so special – the yearbook helped capture all of that and preserve it. The yearbook still paid tribute to their history by incorporating Back in the Day modules on many spreads talking about aspects of their history and had spreads dedicated to the decades, history and famous faces of their school. But more space was dedicated to the current students and their future moving forward, with beautiful profile features highlighting exceptional students, modern fonts, storytelling photography and, as always, extraordinary writing.

    And a fun quirk of the book to make it unique to their school was hiding 50 “Where’s Waldo” characters throughout the book because murals around their school have Waldo hidden in them. They’re not easy either – we only found 45…

    Theme: "Louder & Louder"

    Editors: Alana Kelly, Winona Nasser
    Walsworth representative: Sabrina Schmitz - CJE

    Braden River High School is a school whose theme has been getting "Louder & Louder" every year, and this year, it can’t be ignored. By adding an “er” on to the end of descriptor words, they amplified their message. In their opening, they say, “We’re standing up, speaking out…but we still have more to say. So, run that play. FASTER. Hit that note. HIGHER. Study for that test. HARDER. Together, we’re STRONGER, BOLDER, GREATER. Together, we’re getting LOUDER & LOUDER.”

    With a vivid color spectrum of neon colors and overlays, as well as a brush font that has a clean-cut graffiti feel to it, everything about this book says, “We have something to say!” But more important than just screaming they have something to say was the fact that The Cannon staff said it well. They made features just as prominent of a section as organizations, academics and student life because they knew their students had a story to tell.

    Spreads were chock-full of secondary coverage to include as many students and aspects to the topic as possible. The cover featured a sculptured emboss of a girl yelling in front of a faded duplicate of the image behind her, showing she was getting louder, stronger, bolder, greater. The Cannon yearbook is doing the same thing.

    Theme: "Method to Our Madness"
    Adviser: Heather Keenan
    Editor: Belle Lehr
    Walsworth representatives: Missy Green, Tracy de la Feuilliez - CJE, Lauren Wilhelm

    The Salmagundi staff was having difficulty selecting a theme, that is, until they started talking about how crazy their school is. It’s madness. And thus, the theme “Method to Our Madness” was born. The theme is easier said than done though. How did they manage a methodical and intentional execution to a theme that centered on madness?

    It started on the matte black cover that had a dotted grid pattern in a clear silkscreen and copper hot foil. The perfectly aligned grid helped emphasize the tilted words and letters that spelled out their theme. The dots were seen throughout the book as a pattern, line or box in various colors on every spread. Bold typography letters dangled on the page from invisible strings, adding liveliness to and a sense of continuity throughout the book in headline packages. The color swatches were plentiful yet complementary of each other.

    Another methodical choice the staff made was to use chronological coverage, which helped bring an orderly feel to pages that had umbrella coverage of academic subjects. The Salmagundi staff left us feeling like we could all use a little more madness in our lives.

      Theme: "Method to Our Madness"
      Adviser: Heather Keenan
      Editor: Belle Lehr
      Walsworth representatives: Missy Green, Tracy de la Feuilliez - CJE, Lauren Wilhelm

      The Salmagundi staff was having difficulty selecting a theme, that is, until they started talking about how crazy their school is. It’s madness. And thus, the theme “Method to Our Madness” was born. The theme is easier said than done though. How did they manage a methodical and intentional execution to a theme that centered on madness?

      It started on the matte black cover that had a dotted grid pattern in a clear silkscreen and copper hot foil. The perfectly aligned grid helped emphasize the tilted words and letters that spelled out their theme. The dots were seen throughout the book as a pattern, line or box in various colors on every spread. Bold typography letters dangled on the page from invisible strings, adding liveliness to and a sense of continuity throughout the book in headline packages. The color swatches were plentiful yet complementary of each other.

      Another methodical choice the staff made was to use chronological coverage, which helped bring an orderly feel to pages that had umbrella coverage of academic subjects. The Salmagundi staff left us feeling like we could all use a little more madness in our lives.

  • 2019 OdysseyUniversity High SchoolOrange City, Florida

    Theme: "Not Exactly, But it Works"
    Adviser: Courtney Hanks - CJE
    Editors: Emily Edwards, Jonathan Jackson
    Walsworth representatives: Missy Green, Tracy de la Feuilliez - CJE, Lauren Wilhelm

    The University High staff described in the colophon how last year was all about projecting confidence, but their “Not Really, But It Works” theme this year was about embracing the quirks that made them unique and even the mistakes that somehow made them more successful.

    The simple design left room for bold typography that played right into their theme. It was uneven, staggered text of varying sizes. Not exactly uniform, but it worked. They also strayed from the typical event-focused coverage to fully embrace student story-based coverage. That definitely worked and gave room for all voices to be heard.

    Black and white portraits helped balance the carefree flow of pages in the perfect mix. With exceptional photography, superb writing and savvy design, everything about this yearbook works.

  • 2019 HoofbeatsBurges High SchoolEl Paso, Texas

    Theme: "It's a little..."
    Adviser: Patricia Monroe
    Editor: Cristina Tabler
    Walsworth representative: Lori Garcia

    The Hoofbeats staff took on the theme “It’s a little…” to convey all the little things that make Burges a big deal and give them their identity. They introduced the visual theme elements right away with a halftone effect, staggered-level text and the blueish-teal and yellow gold used throughout the book. The irony is not lost on the intentional disarray and how large the word “little” appears, and the ellipsis gives a nod back to the dots in the halftone pattern used throughout the book.

    They used nearly full-page photos of student activities, but with a deliberate white margin to make use of white space, in their three opening spreads to expound upon their theme. On top of gradient halftone bars, they explained Burges was a little different, a little entertaining, a little unexpected, a little routine, a little thrilling.... a little of all of those and more, and they loved it that way. Various sizes of text emphasized specific words, but the clean look with color-coordinated bars on the top and bottom of caption boxes reminded us that the look and feel were very intentional, thought-out and purposeful.

  • 2019 The StampedeJ.W. Mitchell High SchoolTrinity, Florida

    Theme: "Next Up"
    Adviser: Susan McNulty - CJE
    Editors: Stephanie DeVlieger, Lindsey Hoskins
    Walsworth representative: Sabrina Schmitz - CJE

    J.W. Mitchell makes it easy to look beyond the surface with a clear Plexiglass® cover. “Next Up” is a theme that lends itself to the Plexiglass® cover since you can literally see what’s next – the endsheets that feature gel photography portraits of their students. The back endsheets have a quote from each of the students shown on the front endsheets saying what’s next up in their life and are present throughout the book.

    The school had previously listed their city as New Port Richey, Florida, but this is the first year their address was listed as Trinity, Florida, an up-and-coming city that has grown significantly over the past decade to now include their school. It’s a turning point for the school’s identity, and the opening spreads explored what it means to be Trinity, because Trinity is what’s next.

    Consistent graphic theme elements, like the gel photography pictures for quote modular packages; the bright colors to symbolize how modern Trinity is; the up next modular packages; gradients to signify the forward movement in their city and uppercase/lowercase text treatment in headlines incorporated the visual theme into every aspect of the book, just like a good theme should. With modern fonts and photos that captured the emotion of their school, the reader couldn’t help but want to see what’s "Next Up" in the book.

  • 2019 LegendEl Dorado High SchoolEl Paso, Texas

    Theme: "Off the Tracks"
    Advisers: Vanessa Martinez, CJE
    Editor: Ariana Arredondo
    Walsworth representative: Lori Garcia

    “We wanted to create something that represented our unpredictable and spirited class as well as show the world we weren’t just what they told us we could be. We wanted everyone to know we are bold. We are strong. And most importantly, we go Off the Tracks.”

    That’s how senior and editor-in-chief Ariana Arredondo described their theme in the colophon. Indeed, their theme was bold and implemented vibrant, lively colors and rainbow gradients to achieve the desired effect. The design had a neon glow to it, often paired against solid colored backgrounds for contrast, which gave it a youthful and relevant feel. Even the font Arenq with its double lines and the off-center outlines used with the font Stockport added to the feeling of railroad tracks. They went off those parallel line tracks by tilting the text and layouts on their axis. Duotone cutouts were seen through the book as a prominent graphic feature.

    Perhaps one of the most important aspects of their theme was how all-encompassing it was of their student body. From the inclusion of Spanish and “Spanglish” quotes to equal representation of student views from political rallies and activists to students who participated in a dog show outside of school, the staff went off the tracks of traditional coverage topics to make this yearbook a fully inclusive encapsulation of the year.

  • 2019 FusionHagerty High SchoolOviedo, Florida

    Theme: "Tell Me About It"
    Adviser: Brit Taylor
    Editor: Shayne Watson
    Walsworth representatives: Missy Green, Tracy de la Feuilliez, CJE, and Lauren Wilhelm

    The Hagerty staff knows that every year has a story to tell. Some things remain constant from year to year, but much is defined by the individuals of which it is comprised. With this in mind, the Hagerty staff asked students to tell them about it, “something we don’t know,” “the whole story,” “the story of your year.”

    A bold, paint brush font and doodles helped illustrate that the story was being written. A defined color palette repeating through the chronological coverage gave a cohesive feel and helped the reader move through the book.

    Coverage topics were personal and told the story of Hagerty. Individual expression was on display on the senior decorative Burger King crowns spread and the painting senior parking spots spread. Chronological monthly divider pages spoke of the events unique to the school. Topics like military children dealing with the deployment of parents found a way to highlight an underrepresented population and cutouts of students and faculty accompanied quotes that talked about the year in their own words.

    Theme: "As We Are"
    Adviser: Dow Tate
    Editors: Emily Cooper, Addie Von Drehle and Hallie Higgason
    Walsworth representative: John Kelley

    Do you know the students of Shawnee Mission East High School? They are proud, creative, driven, united, passionate, bold and real, and they wanted a yearbook that reflected their unique personas. That’s why “As We Are” was such an appropriate theme choice. Editors Addie, Hallie and Emily explained the theme was inspired by a quote that said, “We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.”

    They spent the next 576 pages explaining why they are proud, what makes them bold and how creative is more than a cliché to them. It was the first time in 20 years they did not do chronological coverage, deciding instead on topical coverage. The school colors Columbia blue, white and black were predominant in the book, but still left room for accent colors. Intentional margins, a unifying font in specialized styles for each section and graphic treatments kept a cohesive feel and made a limitless theme that could easily overwhelm a less-experienced staff perfectly encapsulate the year.
