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.

“Absolutely love it – thank you! So looking forward to seeing it in print.” – Loreto Normanhurst

“It has been a delight to work with Fresco on the production on our recent Yearbook. The finished product was extremely high quality.

Tangara Yearbook

Tangara School for Girls

Tangara School for Girls came to Fresco in a predicament – they were three years behind with their school yearbooks. As they are quite an undertaking, covering all aspects of school life, it can be tricky to manage and service the project. We have designed yearbooks for over 20 schools and have a clear, simple process that we know works and results in a great yearbook, delivered on time.

Mount St Benedict College approached Fresco Creative to manage their graphic design, yearbooks, event collateral, advertising and media buying. Fresco brought all advertising up to date with a clean, contemporary and creative tone and has created annual campaigns for the school.

Ravenswood School for Girls Fundraising Direct Mailer Design

Ravenswood School for Girls

Ravenswood wanted us to design a direct mailer for their Annual Gift Giving campaign that inspired current parents, past parents, alumni, past staff, bequestors and previous donors to donate to the school. The design needed to be classic and contemporary so we opted for a solid navy outer with gold foiling.
