The Rockstar Design Process

Congratulations on helping lead your yearbook project for 2021! To help streamline your project, please share this page with all members of your Yearbook Committee. You’re always welcome to call Rockstar for support on 1300 782 901.

Rockstar Design – 5 Stages

Stage 1

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 2

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 article text for spelling, grammar and appropriateness.

– Organise all 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. Students will complete their so students may complete their profile responses.

Note: Profile responses must be only collected through your Google Form or Rockstar’s Grade Website. Using a Word document will delay the process.
