Artwork Guidelines

 

Creating your advert -

  • All images or video have to be in a 16:9 aspect ratio or 1280px x 720px in size.

  • All images and video need to be in a landscape orientation.

  • All Images need to be in a JPEG or PNG format.

  • All video needs to be in an MP4 format.

  • Videos can only be a maximum of 20 sec long.

  • If you wish to have your advert shown during Rubix nights, please ensure your advert uses a dark/black background.

  • Content cannot be offensive, inflammatory, damaging to the Students' Union or University's reputation, incite harmful or inappropriate behaviour or conflict with any other existing Union or University policies.

  • We cannot advertise bar crawls.

  • Specifically targeting certain screens is available on request.

 

Tips for designing your advert -

  • Focus on your message. You have 10 seconds if it's a static image or up to 20 seconds if it's a video, so make it count. What information above all else do you want your audience to come away with after seeing your advert? Try and focus on 3 key things.

  • Keep written information to a minimum. Static adverts are only on screen for 10 seconds so the viewer does not have time to read lines and lines of text.

  • Make your advert bold, clear and simple. Most screens are situated on walls or elevated places, so are seen from a distance. If you have a lot of detail in your design, it will be hard for the viewer to pick out the key information.

  • Use the highest quality images you can. The screens are a high resolution, so if you have a poor quality image it will be obvious when it is shown.

 

Points to note -  

  • All artwork and video content will be viewed for suitability upon submission. If anything is deemed inappropriate or unsuitable for the screens at this present moment in time, the Union reserves the right to not display certain content for a duration decided by them.

  • If there is a problem with the content, wherever possible we will get in touch with the individual making the submission and offer guidance on how to bring their content up to the necessary standards to be shown on screen.
