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


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.
