Class-Year Montage

If I could travel back in time, I wouldn’t even doubt whether to present a personalized graduation collage to my classmates. We went through thick and thin together and took hundreds of pictures that reflected all the important events throughout our school life, so that these shared emotions could be captured into a smashing design. Pick the best shots and ginger them up with funky cliparts, like a graduate cap, a pile of books, a blackboard covered in complex formulas or something else that has a special meaning to your fellow students and you.

Generation Collage

Graduation is also a perfect time to thank your parents for believing in the power of your dream and supporting you on the way to achieving it. Here I’ve decided to try another graduation photo collage idea and create an asymmetrical picture compilation to show the continuity of generations. On the left side you can see a recent family picture taken on the G-day, while the right part showcases older images of your parents’ graduation framed by photo film. Have your relatives take a trip down memory lane with a cap-and-gown portrait collage!

 Growing-Up Design

With kindergarten, high school, college, university and everything else in between safely behind you, it’s time to look back and say you’ve done it!

If you have snapped images of your friend or a child as they moved among academic levels, fill a future collage with photo milestones to show all the changes a graduate has gone through. Be sure that the pictures you’ve picked will make a hero of the occasion wonder if they were really so cute and little a long time ago.
