Yearbook theme ideas – At the Movies style
Posted on January 21st, 2011 by DaynaTweet
In this third edition of yearbook theme ideas, we are looking at a movie-style theme. If you’re planning to make your own yearbook or provide SPC Yearbooks with a brief to be professionally designed, then this is another perfect theme post for you. The ultimate in glamorous yearbooks – scrolling film, popcorn and a red carpet. Even if you’re designing your school yearbook yourself, you can make a really fun and unique movie theme, there’s plenty of inspiration – just visit your local cinema or movie theatre and take a look around.
You can go for a very slick, highly designed yearbook style – ask someone who is a dab hand at drawing to provide some illustrations for your yearbook page designs. Use images of film reels and put your photos inside the border to look super-authentic. ‘Walk of Fame’ style gold stars are great for yearbook awards pages – write the recipient’s name inside along with their award title. Graphics of movie tickets or clapper boards are ideal for profile pages. Go for a ultra Hollywood theme with neon lettering for page titles and a red carpet running throughout, holding your page numbers perhaps.
Ask each tutor group to come up with a favourite film which could be the theme of their profile pages, take a vote to make sure that everyone gets a say in which theme is chosen. Be careful not to break any copyright rules, just use the film’s genre as inspiration for your design i.e. a western, a sci-fi, a rom-com, etc.
If you have a bit of time put aside, recreate some famous movie stills within your year group and photograph them to include in title pages.
This theme gives you the license to mix it up and use a wealth of colours, so don’t be afraid to experiment and put your school’s stamp on a movie yearbook theme.
