Oopsie...meant for you to fill this out during the first few days of class. Well...it's never too late ;)
With your group, narrow down your choices to one that you truly feel that you can "flesh out". Take the time to look at all aspects of your theme, and possibilities that could mean for the 2015-2016 yearbook. Keep in mind your target audience, and our need to meet our sales targets (so...think "mass appeal").
Collect your ideas using Pinterest and be prepared to present your creative findings to the class tomorrow. You job is to sell your ideas, so make sure you polish and rehearse before you share your thoughts with the rest of the yearbook staff.
Think about typefaces, types of photography, index and divider pages, folio, graphics, words/phrases, etc. Try and capture as much supporting elements as possible.
We will also be discussing how to work as a Team, and looking at the type of work ethic and time management skills I should be evaluating.
