New York Transit System Is Upgrading

Government agencies and departments can benefit from distributing information digitally.  By introducing a digital signage network, government buildings can share disaster and emergency information, improve communication, provide wayfinding and generate revenue through advertisements.

One recent example of how governments are changing the digital game came from an announcement in July, 2016:  Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York State announced they are renewing the New York City Transit's station refurbishment campaign.

1,025 transit cars will be getting upgrades that could include wi-fi, digital information screens, USB charging sockets and colored light indicators to warn of door closure.  Digital information screens can provide quick and convenient information for passengers!  ‘New York deserves a world-class transportation network, worthy of its role as the heartbeat of the 21st century economy’, Cuomo said.

How can your department or business utilize these forward-thinking trends?

Transform Your Space from Dull to Lively

In a reception area, a waiting room or a lobby, customers and/or employees tend to dwell for short or long periods.  Why not create a place for them that is fun to sit around in?  Here you will see a big corporation that has brought life to their dull lobby walls at HQ.




The company's "emoticons" and "smileys" help to brand the space, while a variety of moods and expressions spring out of the wall in 3D.  Yes, folks, this is merely a sign— fabricated by a team of professional sign makers at BLR Sign Systems.  

If you want ideas for visual expression that you can apply to your own space or building, visit our signs and displays gallery.
