Our primary business is not creative design or application development, but we do have resources to make this happen. Internally we have the skill set to develop some basic items, and externally we have great relationships with experts in the graphic design field, so we can always provide exactly what you need.
Wrap Branding and Design
It is a great marketing strategy to wrap the kiosk with company branding to create greater awareness. We would be happy to assist you with this design, or we can provide you with the templates so you can do your own.
All graphics should be developed in Adobe Illustrator and saved as a .ai or .eps file. We use Illustrator because it is a scaleable vector format that offers great results. If you need to incorporate raster images into your design please be sure they are CMYK and 300 dpi. All fonts should be converted to outlines. Often files can become large, so we can provide you access to a portal to upload your files.
OnScreen Image Design
So you have invested into a great digital signage product. It is very important that you have great quality content on the screen. This content can be static, motion, dynamic or interactive.
Static designs should be designed at the proper resolution. This resolution is typically 1920×1080, 1080×720, or 1366×768. Check with your representative for the resolution of your screen. When designing also be sure to design at 72 dpi and use the RGB palette. Once complete you can save your images as a jpg or png file.
Motion designs should be designed at the proper resolution. This resolution is typically 1920×1080, 1080×720, or 1366×768. Check with your representative for the resolution of your screen. Your motion graphics will play best on our players compressed as a mp4 file using the .h264 codec. On some of our earlier basic media boards you should save files as a avi file using the divix codec. There are many free encoders available but here is one we would recommend. PC Converter MAC Converter
Dynamic content can change based on location or input. Example: Weather, RSS, Menu Board, Pricing
Often a client will try to place their website onto a kiosk. Prior to doing this, make sure that the orientation of the content can fit the orientation of the screen. Many of our kiosk have vertical screens, and if your website is not responsive, it will not typically fit. Also keep in mind that web applications are developed to be used on a PC and are slowly making the transition to touch screens. We bring this up because fingers are often larger than a small mouse cursor.
