Great research posters come in variety forms! While there is certain content that must be covered and size limitations to adhere to, you also have a lot of creative freedom when it comes to your poster’s design. There are several examples posted from various research disciplines to give a few ideas to get you started. You may also be asked to submit a rough draft of your poster.
Limit the amount of text
This may sound counterintuitive but pictures, charts, and graphs are often better at conveying information. Also, think about how long someone is actually going to read your poster or slide. It probably won’t be very long, so make sure that they can go away with an understanding of what your project was about.
Make your title stand out!
This is what will catch people’s attention and make them want to stop and look at your poster. The title should be your largest text. You can also use a different font and colors to make it stand out further.
Keep your font types consistent
While it’s okay to use a few different types to make different sections stand out; try to limit your poster to using no more than three font types.
Giving credit where it’s due
List all authors involved in with your research project, and be sure to include everyone’s correct titles (ex. Dr., Professor, etc.)!!
Put the department your project came out of (ex. Pharmacology, Anthropology, etc.)
