The most effective school yearbook is one that not only features the results, achievements and images of the students for posterity, but also engages the reader and visually represents the character of the school, teachers and especially the students. Schools are dynamic places full of excitement, creativity, discovery and warmth so it makes sense for the yearbook to represent that.
Some schools create a small committee of Year 12’s to run the project with the support and guidance of a teacher, as a learning exercise. Others prefer to manage the production of yearbooks behind the scenes and have a teacher liaise with us. Either way, Fresco Creative has been designing multiple yearbooks a year since 1999 and as such, has a refined and clear process in place, to guide the project from start to finish. Our tried and tested design process ensures that each project runs smoothly and efficiently which is essential when managing hundreds of images, articles from multiple sources and print and production specialties. We offer proofreading and copywriting services as well.
We help our school contact or committee to create a thorough design brief, then we start the design process. We look at past yearbooks, the school’s branding and brainstorm a strong concept for each edition. We will set up example designs, showing a couple of different approaches that meet the brief, present them, select a preferred direction and discuss and implement the school’s feedback. Once the initial idea is locked in, we create a flatplan, help the school to organise the images and articles and start the design of the double-page spreads. When complete, we return the draft, do a few rounds of refinement (assisting the school with marking up changes etc), sign-off and then print and deliver your publication. We can also arrange distribution and digital versions. It’s a walk in the park for us so you can be confident that you will be in safe hands with us as your yearbook’s design partner.

Fresco Creative was approached by the prestigious Oakhill College for graphic design assistance with their 194 page school Yearbook. We helped the school organise their content while we developed concepts based on their new brand guidelines. Once settled on a look for the publication we processed and colour corrected all their imagery and arranged the content in colour-coded sections.
Fresco Creative and Loreto Normanhurst have had a working relationship for over ten years. In that time Fresco developed and produced their flagship magazine Loreto Life magazine. We created their masthead and have evolved it over time, in line with their progressive vision for the school. We have incorporated stories and interviews about all of their major events, including building openings, farewells, anniversaries and celebrations.
