Anyone care to lend a poor blocked designer a hand? Last week it was brought to my attention that one of the Law School’s digital signs is a plasma screen (which, unlike the LCDs that display the signage throughout the rest of the building, carries a risk of burn-in from static images like the background image below (designed by Four Winds Interactive, the company that created the content management software we’re using for the signs).
Right now, the top left hand box features live TV, while the other boxes feature text that rotates periodically. The bottom bar contains a left-ward scrolling list of recent additions to our blogs, podcasts, etc. I need to figure out a way to keep the same color from being in the same place for longer than an hour. I’ve tried moving the various boxes around, but they’re all the same basic color. Changing the colors periodically might work, but will be ugly and inconsistent with our brand. Perhaps periodic “commercial” interruptions, where we expand some of our rotating content? Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
