Engaging Graphics for Digital Signage
Canva’s vast library of templates and customisable elements provides you with an array of options to create graphics that align with the school’s branding and ethos. From promoting events to sharing essential notices, each graphic becomes a work of art designed to catch the eye and convey messages effortlessly.
When paired with TrilbyTV, content can be shared easily and specific content can be created based on the location of your screens. Imagine a visitor entering the school’s main entrance and being greeted with a vibrant welcome sign, while a rotating slideshow showcases the day’s menu in the school cafeteria. This dynamic approach ensures that the content is not only accessible but also relevant to the audience it serves.
We recently spoke with Francis Taylor, Assistant Head, Admissions and External Relations at St John’s College in Cardiff. Their content shows fantastic examples of how you can create vibrant and informative imagery on the platform. Francis told us about how creating content on Canva has been very effective around the school,
“Canva has proved to be an invaluable tool for our digital signage. Creating an eye-catching slide can take as little as a few minutes. For quick messages, a single image can be displayed using the ‘Title Slide’ option on the TrilbyTV platform. Canva Pro’s in-built branding toolkit also allows for our house fonts and colours to be deployed with ease. Also, Canva allows users to store an extensive library of stock imagery, perfect for consistent branding. To sum up, Canva and TrilbyTV combine beautifully to allow for clear, effective and eye-catching digital signage.”

Catering to everyone within a school community can be effortless when using TrilbyTV’s scheduling feature.
