Tips From DSaaS Experts

Chances are, you already have some guidelines that come to mind when designing creative content: stay away from red, ensure your content is engaging, know your audience, etcetera, etcetera.

Do Your Customers Know More Than Your Employees?

Do Your Customers Know More Than Your Employees?

Retailers are the number one users of digital signage. All those video walls, kiosks, endless aisles, sales assist tables and other forms of signage add up to some 40% of the market. And retailers are expected to retain that position in the foreseeable future.  Stores blanketed with digital signs mean customers often are well-informed about sales and product features. The question is, do they know more than your average retail employee? Given typically high associate turnover, the answer could be “yes.”  And the irony is, the same type of digital signs that benefit stores on the sales floor can provide similarly […]

The Color Connection

The Human Brain: Hardwired for Motion

But in today’s modern world, it’s easy to forget that the brain has been key to our continued existence.  “The brain . . . is designed to solve problems related to surviving in an unstable outdoor environment and to do so in nearly constant motion (to keep you alive long enough to pass your genes on).

On the Move: Using Motion Design to Create Compelling Digital Signage

“Design is thinking made visual.” – Graphic designer Saul Bass Digital signage has its own design discipline. It’s not the same as print, or web, or television. Digital signage design needs to bring focus and context to a brand’s story without some of the usual tricks – such as using sound with video. And it calls for a specific infrastructure for production and delivery unlike that for print, web and video. As a matter of fact, since it’s dynamic and motion-oriented, digital signage design has more in common with two other fields of design – animation and movie titles – […]
