Avoid too much text, people won't read
Avoid cluttered backgrounds
Keep the font style, colour and sizeuniform
throughout the poster
Make the colours you use contrasty
and pleasing to the eye.
If you have photographs or charts,
make them the centre piece so that the
eye is drawn to the poster.
Photographs should be high resolution
images, scanned at the highest
resolution or digitized at the highest
If you have references, these can be
placed at the bottom of the poster
in smaller font size
Save your poster presentation every
10 minutes. Post formatting can take
many hours work!
