Graduation Cap Designs: How are Seniors Decorating their Caps?

Personalized Touches for your Graduation Cap

Graduation caps have been a traditional part of graduation ceremonies for centuries, serving as a symbol of accomplishment and a reminder to the journey that has led to this moment.

Graduation caps come in a variety of designs, ranging from classic to modern. The classic design typically features a simple, rectangular shape with a wide brim, often adorned with a tassel or ribbon. This design has been a staple of graduation ceremonies for decades and is often seen in yearbook as a representation of the traditional graduation experience,

In recent years, graduation caps have taken on a more modern look, with designs that incorporate elements such as ribbons, flowers, and even personalized messages. These modern designs often reflect the individuality and creativity of the graduates, making them a popular choice for yearbooks that aim to capture the unique experiences and memories of the graduating class.

Graduation caps have been a cherished part of graduation ceremonies for centuries, serving as a symbol of accomplishment and a reminder of the journey that has led to this moment. Whether it’s a classic, traditional or modern, personalized design, graduation caps are a timeless part of the graduation experience. In the yearbooks, they provide a visual representation of the unique experiences and memories of the graduating class, serving as a reminder of the special occasion that brought the community together.

Besides what a Graduation can become and be to someone we have Yohanna Yonas’s interview: a senior from La Sierra Graduating soon and planning on designing her cap.

Yohanna didn’t have a specific theme that she wanted to use but was thinking of doing either Princess and the Frog theme or just combining a bunch of pictures throughout her high school years, making a mini collage on her cap.

“Did you incorporate any personal symbols or messages on your cap?”

Yohanna said, “I do want to include some quotes like some motivational quotes or sentimental things [about] coming to a close but at the same time a new chapter starting in my life..”

Shes has also been putting a lot of thought to her Grauation cap because this is a big thing and thinking about the possibilities that she can use for weeks before the big day, but once you’re a senior that can just always be on the back of your head from the start.

“Did you follow s specific color scheme for your cap?”

“I don’t wanna use anything that is too bright and will clash with the blue gown. I want something that will have color. Lots of pretty colors but none that can clash the gown,” she said.

“Are there any special materials or techniques you used to decorate your cap?”

“I will want to use paint and flowers but not sure because of the rule of no 3D objects, but paint for sure and rhinestones.”

As for all Yohanna, memories and experiences that she has had with her friends through the years beginning from freshman year to senior year has made her lean more towards the ideas of what she wants for her Gradution cap: as in a collage on her cap because she really enjoyed a lot of moments that she’s had on La Sierra’s campus with her friends and meeting new people in life.

Yohanna also wants to convey that high school is journey, a very short time of four years but a lot can happen within those years, as for that she wants to convey that high school is a journey.

“Did you involve family or friends in the process of designing your cap?”

“My friends and I are planning on decorating our caps sometime today after senior sunset so we’re going to get together,” she said.

How does your cap design reflect your journey throughout your education?

“I think the idea with the collage and adding pictures starting from freshman year to senior conveys how I’ve grown not just as a person but as student becoming more confident and becoming more extroverted as well making more friends along the way,” she said.
