Designing Effective Posters
Effective poster design requires careful thought and advance preparation. The following suggestions may help in preparing effective posters.
- Identify 2-3 principal messages you have to convey.
- Prepare a heading at the top of your poster indicating the abstract title, authors, and affiliations.
- Your presentation must be readable from distances of at least 90 cm. Keep visuals simple and clear. Simple use of colour can add emphasis.
- Summarize current research in graphic form whenever possible; use charts, tables, graphs, pictures, etc. and minimize the amount of text.
- Arrange materials in columns and use 'white space' to help direct readers logically through your poster.
- Prepare your poster on laminated poster paper, fabric, or cardboard, allowing for space to mount it on the poster board with dual side adhesive tape.
- Posters should be self-explanatory but not comprehensive. You will supplement and elaborate during your conversations with other attendees.
