Everything Not To Do In Digital Signage Design, In One Gloriously Bad Pic

hotel-zones-awful

I’ve seen worse. But this is pretty bad.

If you are reading this and don’t see the problems …

  • Too many zones
  • Fonts are too small to read
  • Busy background
  • White text on white background
  • Duelling visuals

Just because the software allows you to do all these things in a layout, doesn’t mean it’s therefore a good idea.

Taken in my hotel lobby. Heading to open house/cocktail party. Need drink after seeing this.
