‘I know nothing with any certainty but the sight of the stars makes me dream’
Vincent Van Gogh may have been a little unhinged but he’s right sure right about this! We’re all dreamers when it comes to a beautiful night sky so it’s no wonder this has been so popular as a yearbook theme over the past few years. I’m not sure I’ve seen a year 11 yearbook go to print without at least 1 person sharing the ‘Shoot for the moon and even if you miss you’ll land amongst the stars’ quote! If you want to go for a stargazer theme, you’ll need to head in one of two ways- sci-fi style or dreamy journal style 🙂 Sci-fi styling looks fab with contrasting deep blues and silvers with title fonts like Megrim and body text in Orbiton.
If you’d prefer a softer approach, ‘Dawn of a new day’ is a delightful handwritten font that looks fab on our constellation inspired Wire Frame background and Starfield background that you can see in the example below.
Now we’ve addressed the fonts and theme choices, let’s see it in action hey?! In true Blue Peter style, here is a profile design we made earlier…
And for your cover design, a swirling nebular background teamed with a simple title creates a very distinct look… plus there is still plenty of room on the back cover to list peoples names, add a photo or maybe even an inspirational quote!
Reach for the stars yearbookers and you might just find the perfect theme for your book! Happy stargazing 😀
