Poster Design

A successful poster will capture and hold the attention of your audience. It will concisely explain your methodology and results, but most importantly it will tell the viewer why they are important. Without an attractive and engaging summary, your good research will be lost on potential viewers who don’t stop to read it.

A good poster will:

  • Meet the guidelines for the specific event
  • Match the audience knowledge base and interests
  • Focus your message – what is the one thing you want people to remember?
  • Convey your message visually
  • Be readable from about 4 - 6 feet away
  • Be clearly organized
