This session will guide the audience through the process associated with effectively testing digital signage solutions, and will showcase the necessity of each element within that process. It will also leave the audience with an appreciation of why this type of research must be conducted in an “in-situation” environment, and why including eye tracking as part of the process is crucial in order to enhance visual fluency of the overall design.
The audience will also gain a greater appreciation for the need to blend conscious and subconscious research techniques, whenever they are evaluating any communication including signage and packaging, and any creative element.
