The Rockstar Design Process

Congratulations on helping lead a yearbook project for 2019! The Rockstar Team look forward to working closely with you on a successful project – please call us on 1300 782 901 for support queries.

Process Guidance for creating your yearbook in 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 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:

 

Student Profile Questions – Class of 2019

Determine the profile questions you would like to have students to complete. Browse popular questions.

E-mail your list of profile questions to your Rockstar Consultant, and we will share you back a Grade Website URL to share with students, so they may complete their profile responses.

Note: Profile responses must be only collected using Rockstar’s Grade Website / Google Forms (not Microsoft Word) – otherwise project delays will occur.

Stage 4

Stage 5

Review Drafts

You will be notified by your Rockstar Consultant when a yearbook draft is is ready for review.

Download and open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat, so you can accurately review the draft.

Mark-up all changes required by using the variety of Comment tools in Acrobat – Text and Sticky notes. Learn more about Comments tools which can significantly save you time.

Save the marked-up Draft PDF, and share via a Google Drive / Dropbox subfolder, and advise your Rockstar Consultant.

(Alternatively, compile one single consolidated list of changes in only one document – no multiple lists please).
