I've been working on the school's yearbook from November 2018-April 2019. I brought forth the idea. The school has not had a yearbook since 2013. I thought it would be important for students to take something from what they did all year long home. The result was this amazing and beautiful 50 page yearbook I designed by myself. I used Adobe Illustrator to create the yearbook. The yearbook also came with a Picture Book flash drive which had a 70 page PDF full of pictures taken throughout the school year.
Since August of 2018, I design the monthly newsletter for Ansaar Academy. I use Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop CC 2018 to design the newsletters and MailChimp to organize which are sent to over a 100 families. When I was given the job, I just learned how to use Photoshop and Illustrator. Over time, the newsletters have gotten cleaner and more professional as a result of the experience I gained from doing them. Below are the newsletters that I have created so far. All graphics are designed by me.
culture day passport (march 2019) 🛂
The annual Ansaar Academy culture day used this passport I created. These passports were printed on 5x4 booklets and were attached to a lanyard. They were distributed to the children at the event.
fundraising poster (september 2018) 💶
These posters were created around early September and are hung around the mosque to mark the amount of money the mosque received for each goal and to encourage more members in the community to donate.
school handbook (august 2018) 📘
I designed the school's handbook using Adobe Illustrator in August 2018. It took about 50 hours to design. Of course, I have improved tremendously since!
