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.

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.
