Yesterday progressed very well. I really appreciated all the help you can give in keeping yourself (and as a result, me) organized.
Today we will discuss, "Theme". It's simple. We need one by the middle of next week. Fully developed, and ready to go. As we start the process, I'd like you to work with a partner and take a look at this list Pick at least 5 from the hundreds listed (or come up with your own), and be prepared to speak in defense of at least one as candidate for this year's book.
With your partner, 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 2017-2018 yearbook. Keep in mind your target audience, and our need to meet our sales targets (so...think "mass appeal").
Collect your ideas using any digital format you feel comfortable with 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. The Snipping tool could be your best friend for this task.
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.
