Credits: Put the end at the beginning.
In the end:
The 2013 Yearbook is graphically beautiful, well-written, very integrated and looks like one person made it woohooo! and the staffers were very good (great), although sometimes require a bit more pressure from the "ogre" (Mister. R)
New EIC1 Senior Leah Mc. - (she published her own book 2013 now on Amazon)Every single paragraph on every page was either written, rewritten or at least checked by Leah. In the last days, she was still inventing captions.
EIC2 Sabrina F. (a Junior yet with a way amazing work ethic) Sabrina came in every day and extra days to work, work, work, work, well you get the idea.
Graphic Editor, Zineb M. (wow all of the backgrounds with illustrator converted into pdf and dropped in a bkg layer) This scientist of an artist made months-worth of backgrounds and theme ideas...before landing on the final illustrator files and as I say wow.
Senior Amalya B. and the never-ending Senior section - built the 48 page senior section with 470 column inches of story about the class of 2013, plus senior spotlight stories on each and mug-shot plus two portraits and 6 facebook type photos for each... Lotsa work. Collection of anything from Seniors with Senioritis = Herding Cats!
Others who were there: ...drum-roll please:
"The New Kid", Junior from SoCal, Spencer C. - odd sense of humor and great graphic sense, a bit "ADD" etc quote: "I'm not prejudiced, I pretty much hate everyone" -MS and K sections very nice work.
Editor, Rania T. (Junior) sweet as pie and worked very hard.. entire ES section and all transitions. She picked up a lot of slack at the end!! Yahoo. Rania, did YB while juggling several extracurriculars. We thought she might explode ... but she always charged ahead.
Then... there were these two crazy Sophomores: Yasmine B.and Salma B. who were veeerrrryyy creative (almost tttooo much) Yasmine built the whole MS and HS sport section. And Salma made all of the major events "dance" with seriously "pro" level graphics. Did I say dance? I guess that is what they almost did everyday in the lab. (grin)
I miss these guys!
If I missed anything?? .. write to me.
... Oh yeah I spent almost another full year of time on this year's book.... vacations, weekends...but who is complaining? Ask my wife.
