Creating and Sharing External ACES signage content
An explanation on how to create and share signage content for external content creators
In order for content to be displayed on the ACES digital signs, it must be created with the "ACES Digital Sign Template" power point file. This keeps content looking similar throughout ACES and ensures the ACES signs are branded accordingly. Once the content item has been created with the template, it can then be shared with the ACES sign managers. Posting of the content to their signs is up to each sign manager. You are free to request specific locations where you'd like a content item to be displayed.
The content creating and sharing process:
1. Download the template file "ACES Digital Sign Template", which can be found here: https://aces.illinois.edu/marketing
2. Use this template to create your content. The top portion should be kept an ACES branded banner. Note that there are several layouts to chose from.
3. Save the content as either a .jpg or .pdf type file.
4. Share this .jpg or .pdf file with the ACES sign managers via email attachment by sending to: firstname.lastname@example.org
