What Should I Consider When Designing My Slide?


A simple and concise message is the key to an effective cinema advertising campaign. You main idea should be focused on a single product or unique selling point.


Your ad should be straightforward and crisp. A viewer will have a much higher chance of recall if the image is eye-catching and to the point. Keep your layout organized and sharp. Make sure your elements are pleasing to the eye, aligned on an invisible grid. Layout is important in your ad design. A poor design can lead to an unsuccessful return.

Don’t attempt to use too many special effects in your design. If they are not applied correctly, beveled edges and textures may appear soft and distracting. Simple drop shadows and stroked edges can give your design just the right amount of extra pizzazz.

Always use high resolution digital images and text in your design. It may look okay on a computer monitor, but a low-resolution design becomes a blurry ad on the theatre screen.

The correct resolution for display is 1280 x 720 and it is highly recommended that the DPI be 72 or higher. Your file can be submitted as a JPEG, JPG, or PDF.
