Written by Danielle Finch

Let’s continue our journey of creative inspiration by diving further into our 2023 President’s Collection Video Series, which showcases the national award-winning yearbooks that choose to print with Walsworth Yearbooks. These videos let you witness award-winning secrets firsthand and come equipped with companion classroom resources. Elevate your staff’s skills by dissecting what sets these yearbooks apart. Let’s take a look at the next four books in this series:


Pine Crest School; Boca Raton, Florida 

The Pine Crest School yearbook showcased innovative design choices and thoughtful coverage that elevated the publication. Creative spreads like the vertical Artemis launch layout and in-depth coverage of topics like artificial intelligence engaged readers through its unique theme package and exemplary design choices. The repetition of visual elements and incorporation of the “Rising Up” theme throughout cohesively told the school’s story. Strong photography and a variety of spread designs involved students of all grades, capturing Pine Crest’s culture. 


H.B. Plant High School; Tampa, Florida 

This award-winning yearbook creatively executed its theme and incorporated consistent design elements that reinforced the theme. It utilized unique typography, thoughtful spreads like the gatefold, and varied visual elements on pages to engage readers while telling the school’s story in a personalized way that resonated with students. The cohesive yet imaginative design made this book stand out from others. 


Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School; Parkland, Florida 

This yearbook from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School had the theme “Who Knew” which was creatively incorporated throughout the book’s design in a chaotic and unorganized way using color blocking and scattered text. This unique interpretation of the verbal theme through visuals helped earn it an NSPA Pacemaker award nomination for outstanding design and execution of carrying the theme cohesively across all pages.


Gulliver Prep Middle School; Coral Gables, Florida

This middle school yearbook from Gulliver Prep was an award winner for its polished and cohesive design. With a theme of “Look at Us Now,” it featured striking black and white photography throughout, along with touches of blue. Spreads were creatively laid out showcasing diversity and student interests. Repeated elements tied the theme together across pages. This yearbook is an engaging publication that represents its entire student body through dynamic coverage and well-rounded storytelling. 

Tune in next week to read out about the next group of schools to be featured, and be sure to follow along with the videos in our President’s Collection and watch with your staff.
