Herff Jones is proud to present the next generation of eDesign. It delivers these powerful features and more.
EASY TO TEACH AND LEARN
You don’t need a degree in graphic design to make an amazing yearbook. Jennifer Parsons teaches her middle school staffers at Greenfield Junior High School basic design using Square One™ and eDesign. Once a few templates are built, students create their custom library, filling it with templates and mods. Or you can start with our pre-designed offerings.
EASY TO COLLABORATE
With school happening in new formats since 2020, the portability of eDesign is a game-changer. Students can work anywhere they have access to Wi-Fi and on nearly any sized screen, even an iPad. In March 2020, when their school closed, the Paragon staff from Munster High School in Indiana switched from InDesign to eDesign in order to create their spring supplement.
EASY TO ADVISE
Advisers have so many roles in the yearbook world — creating an accurate record of the school year, teaching writing, design and photography, running a business, grading. We know it’s a lot, and that’s why we equip eDesign users with all sorts of reports. From staff activity to coverage to buyers/non-buyers. eDesign lets you take control of it all.
EASY TO ADOPT
One of the exciting things about Canva is that so many students and advisers are already well-versed in the platform. “Canva is a very beneficial website for anyone who loves being creative,” Rylee Norman said. Norman is the advertising lead at Greenbrier East High School in Lewisburg, WV, and used Canva to create ads for the 2021 yearbook. “It is so simple to create any type of advertisement or display you need. Canva is very user-friendly, even for beginners. I recommend Canva over [other products] for not only ease of use but also having auto save for each project.”
