Papercast reveals significant enhancements to e-paper graphic design library

Improved and enhanced design templates enable our customers to show clear and visually striking graphical travel information on Papercast e-paper displays

Papercast has revealed enhancements to its graphic design capabilities for its range of e-paper passenger information displays. Working in collaboration with some of the sector’s most prominent public transport providers, the improvements go one step further to taking full advantage of the technical scope of e-paper.

The e-paper graphic design library provides intuitive design capabilities for presenting a wide range of live and static travel information on Papercast e-paper displays. It is a comprehensive library of layouts, templates, graphics, styles and icons that meets best design standards.

“The aim is to meet our customer’s evolving needs for presenting complex travel information, in a style that suits both their brand styling and their passenger needs,” said Robert Bicket, Chief Executive at Papercast. “We are delighted to be able to offer a wide range of easy-to-use, visually impactful and fully customisable layouts, templates and design features to meet this goal.”

E-paper mimics the qualities of real paper. This transport authorities and operators benefit from a solar powered self-sustainable electronic display, yet still have the freedom to display a wide range of detailed travel information. They will benefit from greater flexibility to present information in accordance with their brand visual identity, while keeping passengers more informed.

These examples show the art of the possible with a selection of layouts and styles applied to a range of Papercast e-paper display sizes and formats.

Papercast also offers full customisation to meet brand requirements. E-paper display enclosures, along with solar and battery modules, can be fully customised to meet individual brand identity requirements, from enclosure colour and branding through to content styling and design.
