There are many ways to set up the look and layout of your signage. You may opt for full screen, single zone messages or you might go with a multiple zone layout that allows you to display multiple pieces of information at the same time. Either way there is a good reason to use one over the other.
Single Zone Layout
Single zone layouts allow your viewers to focus on 1 piece of information at a time. It helps keep your content focused and simple.
Multi-zone layouts allow you to display more than 1 piece of content at a time but it’s important to note that multi-zone layouts have their advantages and disadvantages.
- Give content room to breathe. Just because you are using the entire screen doesn't mean you need to fill it entirely.
- Dedicate 1 zone to main content, the rest should be secondary
- Dedicate your main content to the largest section of the screen
- Don’t overwhelm the viewer, less is more
