During the first semester our main project is the annual Geneva School yearbook. Students are involved in every aspect of the decision making—from brainstorming a theme and organizing data, to crafting the details of each page, to managing advertising and sales. In the production phase the students implement their creative skills and talents through writing, graphic design, and photography. Yearbook students apply for “staff” positions and are then responsible for assignments specific to their given areas, while editors are responsible for the overall production.
During the second semester, students work on a variety of other graphic design related projects, such as logo development, brochure layouts, and stationary or logo design, for select non-profit organizations.
It is possible for a student to take this course more than once during their rhetoric years. When this occurs, veteran students take on a more responsible role as they mentor less-experienced students. Computers and cameras are provided for each student as and when needed
