Content Guidelines for Digital Flyers
In an effort to maintain consistency in message and branding, we have established some basic content guidelines that should be met before displaying content. By following these simple guidelines, your message will look more professional and reach more people.
Overall, keep it simple. Too much text or too many images will clutter your message and decrease readability. Try to use fewer than 30 words on any one flyer in order to make the greatest impact. Each flyer is only visible for 5-15 seconds so there’s no time to read much more than these 30 words.
Consider the colors used in your flyer carefully and maintain consistency with the B-CU color palette. Ensure strong contrast between your image background colors and the text colors so that your sign can be easily read when displayed. Be sure to test the colors on the screen output before committing to the final color scheme.
Ensure that the text on your digital flyer is readable. Use large font sizes so your message can be read without the need to stand directly in front of the screen. Try at least 40 pt for headlines and at least 24 pt for the body text. Use bold lines when designing objects for digital signage. Lines that are too thin do not display well and may appear broken or look invisible.
