One of the easiest ways to bring visual candy to your yearbook is through the wise use of color. There are a couple of things to keep in mind when planning color usage on your pages.
. Choose photos with interesting or bold colors rather than dull or washed out colors.
. Make sure the dominate colors in each of the photos on the page are complementary. Nothing ruins a well designed spread faster than clashing colors, even within your photo package.
. Pull an interesting color from your dominate photo and use it in creative ways on your spread. Color the headline or sub-headline; create a drop or raised cap in the pull color to introduce your copy; use the pull color as a way to define caption space; add the color to a secondary or tertiary copy package; use it as the primary color in an infographic.
Here are just a few examples of things you can do with color to treat your readers to something special:
Be bold in your color choices, and create a visual masterpiece!
