Design Tips

  • Avoid clutter.
  • Keep it simple.  Avoid using too much text--each slide is displayed for approximately 10 seconds. 
  • Use 1-3 fonts and keep sizes consistent.  Do not use anything smaller than 14 pt. font.
  • Limit color use, but use bold, eye-catching colors.
  • Use design elements such as color and size to create a hierarchy of important information.

Editing & Prioritizing

The college's communications department reserves the right to edit images and/or text on submitted advertisements.  It also reserves the right to prioritize which slides will run as space is limited on the display.
