#621 Create Digital Sign to promote Fedora (29) release
Opened 4 months ago by benzea. Modified 7 days ago

Red Hat has screens in the office that show information about latest events. Similar screens may also exist in other companies or locations, where the Fedora release could be promoted. This could be a good way to reach people who do not use Fedora on a regular basis.

I think it would be a great opportunity to have Fedora release promotion on these screens to promote Fedora 29 inside Red Hat and possibly elsewhere.

For the Red Hat internal screens, the information can be found on https://mojo.redhat.com/groups/digital-signage. It is suggested to use provided slide templates for branding, but I suspect that is not a hard requirement.

For the benefit of our community members who don't have access to Red Hat's intranet, I am attaching the blue template for the digital signage here. As provided, it's a LibreOffice slide file:


We need some copy for the slide, and a graphic, and it should probably point to https://getfedora.org (or just getfedora.org is fine.)

I think this would be a good ticket for a newbie to pick up so I'll tag it newbie too.

Once complete, I'm happy to manage sending this slide in to get it into the rotation.

@duffy @benzea I would like to work on this ticket, but there are few things that aren't clear to me. Should I use the blue template for the digital signage or create a completely new one? What text (informations) should the slides contain? Should I use something from https://getfedora.org ?

Hey @terezahl -

You do not have to use the template - it's up to you - but you can use it as guidance for what dimensions are needed.

I think the main point is to let people know the latest version of fedora and where to get it. So information that would be useful:

  • Fedora 29 is out!
  • You can download it at getfedora.org

Maybe highlight some new features too? You could look up the F29 release announcement on fedoramagazine.com or the community blog and see what the f29 highlights were?

Hey @terezahl this one came up during triage today in the meeting, any updates?

@duffy @benzea this is what I came up with so far. I used the text from this article https://fedoramagazine.org/whats-new-fedora-29-workstation/. I also used colours from the Fedora 29 wallpaper. Let me know what you think!


little bit low contrast on some
