Meet our Designers!

We have our very own design team, here to design a cover that everyone loves! Jess and Tom, our expert designers, have put together a few of their top tips to help get you started. Our designers are here to bring your ideas to life. They love hearing new ideas and working with schools to create their perfect cover.


Having designers working closely with each of our customers means that we can create and design the perfect cover for you. Every customer is different, so we take the time to make your cover bespoke to your school. The design helps you tell your story, so the more information you can give, the faster the process.


Every year we create new covers, you can see our new covers for 2020 further down this page!

Jess

Graphic Designer

Jess' top tips

  • Colours can be fun! We have lots of colour palettes to choose from - maybe think about using a similar colour scheme for your cover and the inside of your yearbook.
  • What inspires you? - I recommend starting with Pinterest or our ideas page this is always a great place to start.
  • Don't be afraid of using fun fonts, keeping to one or two has a better effect!

Tom

Graphics & UI Designer

Tom's top tips

  • Take risks! Most things look much better when put together than they do in your head, don't be scared to experiment!
  • Make it unique - Anybody can put text on the cover of a book, so why not draw something or create something to set your yearbook out from the rest?
  • Have fun with it - The best way to make artwork you're going to be proud of is to have fun doing it. If you don't enjoy the process, how can you enjoy the final product?

Design Q&A.

Can we change the colours and the text on the sample covers?

Of course you can, it's your yearbook so you get to choose the colours. If you have specific school colours and fonts speak to the designers and they can create a cover that matches your school.

We don't have a copy of our logo - can you help?

If we have worked with you before and you sent us your logo we will have this on file, however if your logo changes we would always recommend you send us a high resolution copy, you will see the difference when printed!

Where can I talk to the designers?

All conversation and design happens in the yearbook. Once you have set up a yearbook you will see the 'Cover' section it's here that you choose the style of cover that you like. You can leave messages, attach photos, logos and messages all in one place, this is also where the versions of your cover will be displayed. Once you happy with the cover you just click approved!

How long does it take to design a cover?

Every school is different, sometimes it's a simple couple of colour changes and text, other times it's unique ideas that take more creativity and time. We always recommend thinking about your cover at the start of the project. Leaving your cover to the last minute could mean that our designers are too busy to create the cover of your dreams! Of course it will look great, but the more time we have the more creative we can be!

Can you create a background for me?

We can create anything for you. Just speak to our team of yearbook experts and share your ideas with us!

How does our cover appear on the celebrated student section?

Each year we will review the covers created by schools and students, we love celebrating the students - the top three that our designers choose will be featured, with your permission. We might even start giving out prizes!

If selecting premium or leatherette hardback yearbooks what can we have engraved?

When you select one of our premium books you can choose either silver or gold engraving, some schools choose to engrave their school logo, the date or the school motto.

How can I include a list of names on the back cover?

Send your list of names in the 'Cover' section and our designers will create the number for you.

Can we have endpapers if we don't have premium yearbooks?

Our endpapers are the perfect way to display a whole group photo, have a school motto, a quote or just have watermarks on for signing names. Endpapers are only available on our premium books, if you would like to see a copy of our premium book you can request a sample pack here.
