1st Prize:

Fort Valley State University 2019 Yearbook

Entry Description:The staff brainstormed on what they believed a FVSU Superhero would look like in a comic. They wanted to incorporate different symbols that represented the campus on the cover. Collectively, the staff worked on the cover with input from an alum (Robert Walker), a friend (Billmasukuart), and the university. Some ways we brought our vision to reality was by including the wildcat paw signal, the wildcat man, a mock of the campus cheerleader’s uniform on the superhero, the campus dorms, university seal, and yearbook seal. We used typography that we would believe would appear on a comic. The cover was created using Adobe Photoshop.

Entry Description: Our theme was inspired by the universe. The designers wanted to work with something that resonated with the children, the staff and at the same time had multiple options of beautiful imagery available. At our school, we propose three themes to the 5th grade graduating class and let them vote on it. “PS 40 Universe" was the design teams favorite theme so we were thrilled when the students voted for it!  We collaborated among the group about all the various imagery that could fall under the theme of “Universe" and came up with such subjects as constellations, solar system, astronauts, planets, aliens, stars, rockets, etc. All of these images were readily available and altered to fit the palette that our design team decided upon.

3rd Place:

Riverside Elementary Evans, GA 2019 Yearbook

Entry Description: Our theme was “Reading, Writing, Riverside". To showcase reading & writing, we had every child in the school write the name of their favorite book, in their handwriting on a sheet of paper. I then edited the individual writing samples, using photoshop, to make the cover, incorporating our logo for riverside. Throughout the book, we used quotes either from books or about reading or writing. Every staff member also gave the name of their favorite books. The hope was to encourage our students to branch out and be inspired to read new books. Or even write some of their own. The backgrounds for all the pages are murals that are painted throughout our school. We wanted the parents to know that our emphasis for the year was to encourage reading and writing.
