Inspiration all around us!

Inspiration, JEA/NSPA, Yearbook Camp

We were thrilled to have the fall 2018 JEA/NSPA in Chicago this year. There was so many great moments, that we wanted to collaborated with Molly Jane St. Clair, a Junior at Central High School in Evansville, IN, to create a short video highlighting the experience. The video was created using iMovie. Video clips were taken on an iPhone and photos were primarily taken by Maureen Olofsson and Jamie Silver with DSLR’s.

We can learn so much from others experiences, that is why conferences like JEA/NSPA and local camps can help grow our journalism programs. Enjoy the video and get inspired to attend a conference or workshop, you will not be disappointed and your program will improve with each experience.

#YBKStrong – organize an effort of hope

Herff Jones, Inspiration, YBKStrong

It seems like every week we hear about another natural disaster. It is hard to wrap your brains around how you could help. Below is a message from our Florida Yearbook Reps giving us an update. If you are looking for a way to help just email:

ybkstrong@herffjones.com

and they will let you know how you can start a campaign in your school to help a school in need.

A message from our Florida reps: “Florida Christian School led our Yearbook Strong campaign last night at their football game by donating over $2,200 worth of gift cards to Marathon High School during what would have been their Homecoming Game. The parents in the stands from Marathon stood to their feet during the presentation with tears in their eyes. In addition the Florida Christian cheerleaders, SGA and football coaches served the Marathon students an amazing dinner after the game.

Sadly, the Keys and East Collier county (East of Naples) are still hurting badly. Patty and Jose will be going to see all of our Keys’ schools this week to get a better assessment on how you all can help us execute Florida Yearbook Strong to these schools in need.Please help us get the word out. Schools have been sent semi-truck loads of items but the families have no where to store them. Many, many families are displaced. Some are living in hotels. Others are living five families in one home. Others are still living in tents. The schools are requesting gift cards from Publix, Winn Dixie, Home Depot, Walgreens or CVS. Please help us help them.”

There is more help needed, with the fires in California, even more schools will be in need. Thanks Maureen & Melissa

 

Using Infographs in your Mod Design

When you make yearbooks for a living, it’s hard to look at any design without thinking about how it would work as a mod. This morning I saw a brochure with infographs, so I snapped a photo of it and created these three infographs in eDesign.  I also added 2 links to infograph generators in the copyright section of this website.

Look for inspiration and let us help you recreate it. Most designs can be created directly in eDesign, so lets make each yearbook unique. If you want to use any of the three infographs I already creates, let us know, and we will transfer them into your eDesgin site.
