Plano East yearbook staff has been hard at work on the 2017-’18 annual for several months.
Beginning in March 2016, the staff will wrap up work in April 2017 on “A Touch of Gold.”
“We wanted to create something that was more traditional than concepts we have had in the past. This year we really wanted to focus on the PESH community and what it means to be a Panther,” Editor-in-chief Mila Tsvestanova said.
In 2016, before getting into the design process, the staff pulls together ideas and uses a Pinterest board to organize their thoughts.
According to Abby Cole, journalism department head, editors work on page design over summer break, page ladders and specialty spread ideas. Once the school year starts, staff is trained on the fundamentals of journalism and creating a yearbook.
