Simplifying Page Layout

Written by Idea File Staff

Walsworth has created three collections of pre-designed pages and page elements that can be customized for your yearbook. Designer Series and Designer Series Plus layouts are pre-designed for Adobe® PageMaker®, Adobe® InDesign® and QuarkXPress™ users. The layouts are available for every section of the yearbook.

Graphics and Ad Express are libraries that give you drag-and-drop access to page elements such as headline treatments, scoreboards, photo groupings, and different sizes of personal ads.

Designer Series and Express library elements help make yearbook page design easy because you and your staff can use these layouts and page elements as-is, dropping in your own photos and copy to tailor them for your school. The Designer Series Plus layouts, found in the Desktop Yearbook Guide, were taken from schools around the country and represent some of the best yearbook layouts Walsworth prints.

However, if you would like to flex your creativity, DSL and Express libraries can also serve as a good starting point for your yearbook. Add color, graphic elements and different fonts, or rearrange layout elements to make the layouts your own
