If you want to design your own digital sign, you can! Just be sure to follow the best practices listed below. When you're done, submit your sign to our team using the Project Request form.
You can also use a template provided by Syracuse University Marketing & Communications: Digital Signage Templates
You can submit your digital sign in two different formats:
Submit as a graphic (recommended): you can submit your digital sign as a 19:6 ratio graphic (JPG or PNG). It should be at least 1920 x 1080 px.
- Submit as a PowerPoint slide: alternatively, you can submit your digital sign as a PowerPoint slide (.pptx) using the 16:9 aspect ratio. For best results, use system fonts that are readily available on a Mac or PC. Specialty fonts downloaded from the internet may not display correctly.
All events must have the following details:
- Event name
- Copy describing and promoting your event
- Contact/organizer name and @syr.edu email
- Edit for clarity, spelling, and grammar before submitting your digital sign.
Use the current iSchool logo. You can find all current iSchool logos on MarComm's Answers page. Submitted signs that use a retired logo will get kicked back.
