Yearbook vocabulary

  1. 1. Yearbook Vocabulary
  2. 2. Also known as: “What on Earth is She Talking About?”
  3. 3. Main Parts of the Yearbook • Cover = the front of the book (duh). • Endsheets = the pages just inside the front cover. Ours are usually a solid color. Good for writing on. Some schools design these to look special…but that costs extra. • Title Page = name of the book, school info, year & volume number, address & phone, enrollment, sometimes the table of contents. • Opening = a double spread that introduces and explains the theme of the book both in a written article and in pictures and graphic elements. • Dividers = Two page spreads that introduce the various sections of the book. Ours are usually People, Sports, Clubs, Special Events, Ads. Usually includes photos and article(s).
  4. 4. Two Page Spread (or Double Spread): two pages together. Yearbooks are usually designed as two page spreads whenever possible. 1 12 2
  5. 5. Text Copy Story Feature Article These 5 words all mean the same thing: words on the page that explain the main idea or tell the story.
  6. 6. Text Copy Story Feature Article
  7. 7. Caption: words that explain or give more info about the photo. Headline: title of the page. Gives the reader an idea of what the page is about. Should be creative and not obvious. Secondary Headline: identifies the content of the spread and tells something specific about the season, event, class, etc.
  8. 8. Template = a pre-designed plan for where all the elements on the page will go. You can just drop text and pictures into the template, or you can make adjustments to the template, too.
  9. 9. White Space = parts of the page that are left blank. White space is important and can be used to emphasize. Try NOT to trap white space in the middle of a design. Kind of trapped white space, but not too terrible.
  10. 10. Gutter = the center line between two pages. You MUST keep text out of the gutter. However, you CAN run a picture through the gutter, but you need to be aware of how it will look. Good. Both faces can be seen. Makes a nice design. Bad. Oooh, I feel sorry for you if you were sitting in the middle! In general, keep elements 2 picas away from the gutter.
  11. 11. Secondary Coverage Modules = a special box or area of the page that is separate from the rest and contains extra info, fun facts, quotes, survey results, etc. These can be designed in a LOAD of different ways. 4 Examples of Modules:
  12. 12. 3 more Examples of Modules:
  13. 13. And even MORE modules (because we love them):
  14. 14. Folio = the page number. A new trend in yearbooks is to “jazz up” the folio by adding a graphic element, or even photos and quotes. Page number, picture, & quote Section name, sport, & page number
  15. 15. StudioWorks is the name of the online tool that we use to create the pages of the yearbook. It is made by a company called Balfour. By the end of the year, you’ll be an expert on all the buttons, menus, and features of StudioWorks!
