Multi photo frames are used creatively for various types of photo displays, but one that is not commonly used is for creating a staff photo board. Businesses tend to think these projects need a custom frame so they can fit a photo of each staff member and a nameplate too.
The nameplate is the trickiest; however, there are various methods you can use to help viewers identify the people in the photo. It does not take a creative arts department to frame a team photo to display in your offices, store, or waiting room.
3 Ways to Create a Staff Photo Board
1) Take the Photograph with Each Person Holding a Name Plaque
A name plaque does not need to be formal. It can be as simple as a small frame with the persons first name printed on a sheet of paper, placed into a frame, and held up for the photoshoot. Holding printed names in small frames is best for a fun look rather than anything formal. The frames can be held at different angles, and they can be different colours too. The same applies to the colour of ink the name print is in. Monotone is common for formal photo displays, but there is nothing to say you cannot use your brand’s colours to create a branded look for a business’s staff photo board.
2) The Charity Day Event Photo
A lot of businesses take part in charity events at least once per year, some even more. For those who hold their own events such as a fun day, sponsored run, cycle, walk or anything else, it is a good time to get the team together for the photoshoot.
A team photo board can show staff members at the start of an event, plus various photos taken during the event. For a charity event, the main photo for a multi photo frame will be the one of the entire team showing the funds raised, or the photo of a large cheque being presented to the charity. This would be placed in the centre of a multi photo frame, making it a team photo and a storytelling board.
3) Display Headshot Photos Only (no name tags)
This is by far the simplest as there is no creativity needed to display nameplates. These can be formal or informal too. For a formal photo board, such as those intended to display in a dentist waiting room or other formal environments, a black frame with an off-white mount board is contemporary and goes with any style of decor.
For other areas such as hospitality facilities, an idea is to choose a multi photo frame in brand colours, using photos of staff in their uniforms, and place the frame at the entrance as part of a welcome board.
Team and staff photo boards can be created using multi photo frames in a variety of colours. Some can hold as many as 52 photos per frame, making these ideal for smaller businesses, but in larger organisations, they can be just as effective for departmental photo boards or a photo board to display the professional photographs of each member of management.
