A campus screens template refresh is just around the corner

July 15, 2019

As we continue to roll out new brand assets, our campus screens are the next place you will have access to updated visual content.

For the past several months, we have been working to create new Carousel templates that will bring this platform to life. In other words, new designs that make sure the screens don’t all look the same. The templates feature new fonts and colours, maximized space and more options for content with little to a lot of text.

Preview the new templates:

Starting in August, these will be available in Carousel. This means that old templates, and content created using the old templates, will no longer be available.

Timeline

Since the new templates will be available to you in August, start planning your fall screens content so you can begin building bulletins when they become available!

With the number of template choices is increasing from twenty to over fifty, you will have many more options for expressing your messaging. To help, the Communications & Marketing staff offers design consultations which can be booked here once the new templates are made accessible.
