Custom Design – 5 Stages

Stage 1

Complete a Design Brief

Rockstar will custom design your yearbook based on the design preferences you share with us.

Take a moment to think about ways to best visually express your school’s unique story of 2024!

When ready, complete the design brief below:

Stage 2

Draft a Table of Contents

Determine the features and corresponding page number you’d like to appear within the yearbook.

Use the Google Sheet which has been shared by your Rockstar Consultant

Stage 3

Collect & Review Content

Collect articles, photos and student profile responses as soon as possible. End of year approaches fast, so set a content deadline and communicate this with your peers frequently.

Review all content for spelling, grammar and appropriateness.

Organise the content files into a master Yearbook folder. Create sub-folders named by their page number which matches the Table of Contents Google Sheet (see Phase 1).

Share the master Yearbook folder with Rockstar via these Google Drive or Dropbox accounts:


Collecting Student Profiles

– Choose the profile questions which you’d like all students to complete.

To collect responses, either You or Rockstar can manage:

You manage: Create a ✅ Google Form asking all profile questions. When all responses are collected and edited, share the sheet with [email protected]

or Rockstar manages: E-mail your list of profile questions to your Rockstar Consultant, and we will create a Grade Website URL to share with students.

❌ Do not use a Word document to collect profile responses. This will introduce significant errors and delays.


Formalise Content with Rockstar

Stage 4

Rockstar designs your yearbook

Stage 5
