Grad Ticket Design

The 2024 graduating class needs your help! It’s time to start thinking about buying a ticket for this year’s graduation and we need a new design for those tickets.

Here’s what we had last year:

and here’s what we had the year before that:

You, being the talented designer that you are, could surely come up with something even more interesting!

The first step is to design the actual ticket. Later you’ll put a bunch on a sheet and cut them out.

The setup for one ticket is:

3.5 in by 2 inches, plus a .25 inch bleed

These could be designed in Illustrator or InDesign. If you want to use Photoshop, make sure you are setting up your page to be 4 inches by 2.5 inches, and leaving a margin that is about .5 inches on all sides (.25 inch bleed & .25 inch margin). (if you need help with setting up Photoshop properly, check THIS POST. The size is different, so the measurements will change, but the idea is the same.)

You’ll design the front and the back of the ticket, so make sure you have two pages/artboards! You do not need Facing Pages if you’re using InDesign.

You don’t have a lot of space and there’s a lot of text to include, so don’t add in too much more, but feel free to work a logo in or just use shapes & colours and more interesting fonts to make the ticket look much more appealing!
