None of those who've been to school and college would be unaware of what a yearbook is. In fact, we all collect them with a fondness and cherish them as long as possible as they are memoirs of a year gone by that was full of events and incidents. And if you are in charge of creating one, that's a whole lot of rushing around collecting photographs, articles, poems and editorials, another episode that could be made yet another topic for the yearbook.
While planning to create yearbooks, there are certain factors that you need to keep in mind. Here are a few of them:
Assign people to do the tasks
When it comes to making yearbooks there are various aspects that you need to take care of. Collecting materials, collecting funds, editing, designing the layout, etc. are a few of such tasks. Assigning each task to each person will make things easier for you later. This way, even if there is a crisis at the last moment you have someone to manage it or give you a helping hand in managing.
Decide on the theme
Sometimes you have a theme for the book and thus make the remaining materials follow the theme, for example, the centenary of the school, commemoration of an event, etc. This way you might have a special feature on the history of the school or the city, career of a teacher or principal, etc. It is better to decide on the theme at the start of the academic year or even before so that the person assigned to write on it can start collecting his or her materials for it.
Keep the deadline at all costs
Besides the real deadline for the completion of the yearbook, have one for yourself weeks ahead of the real one.
