UND digital signs are located in areas of campus with a high amount of foot traffic. The signs provide helpful information such as upcoming events, weather, UND news, building maps, hours and directories, campus maps, and other UND content. Some of the signs are touch screens and provide an interactive experience for the user. Most signs play a looping slideshow, where the content changes every 6-10 seconds.
If you use Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, or Microsoft Publisher, you can download a Pre-Sized Template to get started.
We recommend including the following: who, what, when, where, a graphic, and department logo. Remember that each slide only shows for 6-10 seconds so don't include too much information. You can always direct the viewer to a webpage that has additional information.
Standard Digital Sign Size
If you would like your content to be displayed on all available signs, please submit both landscape and portrait design files. JPG is preferred but PDF is also accepted.
- Landscape: 1920 x 1080 pixels [most common]
- Portrait: 1080 x 1920 pixels
Please fill out a Digital Sign Request Form to submit your advertisement to be displayed on UND digital signs. Once the submitted, allow 1-2 business days for your content to be added. It is recommended that you start the design process early in case there are changes that need to be made.
Who can display content on signs?
UND staff, faculty and student organizations may create digital sign advertisements if the event or information is UND related and benefits students on campus. The content you submit will be displayed on a large number of UND signs so it is recommended that a graphic designer create the content design. The content displayed will be up to the University's discretion. If questionable content exists, your ad may be denied or will need to be resubmitted with changes that are requested.
If your department doesn't have a designer on staff, the Division of Marketing & Communications may be able to assist. If you need help with a digital sign design, please submit a Project Request Form.
