The Marriott School of Management is striving to create an environment that encourages professionalism and academic achievement in the Tanner Building. To help facilitate this goal, there are twenty-three flat-screen monitors in the Tanner Building designated to display digital advertisements.
Digital signage at the Marriott School is intended to replace all printed signage, such as posters or vinyl lettering, except the following: bulletin board flyers, information table signage, school-sponsored or special event signage, or building closure flyers.
Ads must be a standard (4:3) horizontal PowerPoint slide (preferred) or a 1024×768-pixel .jpg with a resolution of at least 72 dpi. Slides will run 6–8 seconds each in a continual rotation.
All ads must be created and submitted by the sponsoring organization.
- Horizontal billboard-style design works best
- Avoid text-heavy slides; Each slide gets 6–8 seconds of viewing time
- Font size should be 12 points minimum
- Sans serif fonts, such as Arial, are easier to read
- Style formatting
- Room numbers—Number before name: e.g. W408–410 TNRB
- Dates—Weekday, Date Month: e.g. Thursday, 1 September
- Time—Exclude :00, include periods in a.m. and p.m.: e.g. 9:30–11 a.m., 11 a.m.–1 p.m.
Ads should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The digital signage administrators reserve the right to change or edit the design or text of an ad; therefore, ads should be submitted in an editable format. If a .jpg is submitted, it may be returned for correction. If after submission you notice a slight change that needs to be made, please contact email@example.com.
Ads must be submitted at least three full business days before their preferred debut on the displays. For example, if an ad needs to start running on Friday, it must be sent in by Tuesday. In general, ads will only run for two weeks.
Slides for recurring or ongoing events will only be run for one two-week period per semester or term.
Employees and student groups who would like to request that a calendar item be placed on the digital signage’s sidebars and on the Marriott School Featured Events Calendar should include this request when the ad is submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the date, time, location, and description of the event.
Only Marriott School or BYU-related events and information will be posted. The ads must not contain any unauthorized use of copyrighted materials or inappropriate language or images. The Marriott School also prohibits advertising, selling, or soliciting by outside businesses, agencies or individuals on digital signage.
Marriott School External Relations will be the key contact for signage. All slides will be reviewed by two editors. Editors may reject or restrict submissions.
The Marriott School Business Career Center will oversee recruiter ads. Please visit marriottschool.byu.edu/digitalsignage/recruiter for guidelines. Ads will only be posted that comply with BYU’s On-Campus Recruiting Policy at ucs.byu.edu/RecruitingPolicies.
Exceptions to this policy may be requested by contacting email@example.com.
For some large Marriott School events, the ads may be paused to run event-related information.
