    Are you trying to pre-place the LEDs on a board so they spell what you want even when turned off, or are you wanting to make this with a scrolling matrix/banner type display?

    The first is relatively simple, LED series parallel array wizard. Get LED current and Vf from the datasheet.

    The second (scrolling), is not so simple.
