Global Digital Signage Conference 2017

The first ever Global Digital Signage Conference is set to take place May 11, 2017 as a major part of London Digital Signage Week. James Abdool, Head of Digital Experience at Arcadis will keynote the conference and explain how he 'discovered' the digital signage industry whilst building a very successful business streaming music into the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors.

In what will surely prove to be very popular with the maker/hacker community, the day's chairman, DailyDOOH editor-in-chief Adrian Cotterill, will be holding a fireside chat with Eben Upton CBE, founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

Other speakers include Josko Grljevic, Exterion Media's Chief Technology Officer, Electrosonic's Managing Director Sarah Joyce, Electrosonic's Sales Director Paul Louden and TAD Associates' Rob Badenoch.

Harrods' Media Sales Director Guy Cheston will close the conference with a presentation entitled 'Anything Is Possible. How To Create Retail Theatre And Sell Ads With Digital Signage.'

Seibu Railway released some cool good manners posters inspired by ukiyo-e

We already know that art can be an excellent source of inspiration for advertising, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that this campaign inspired by ukiyo-e (traditional Japanese prints) works so well to remind train users to keep good manners on the train.

Seibu Railway releases each year a new poster that is used for prevention purposes. The posters use mostly Kabuki actors as characters of its ads, the Kabuki prints are notoriously known for their expressive faces, so it shows very well how annoying the noisy train travelers are, and how annoyed the others can be.

Cute planters that look like tiny buildings

Pull and Push, a design studio from Kyoto, created these little building called Mansion Planter.
