Poster Method 2
Posters are combination of text, pictures, charts and diagrams to describe information. They are a portable way to exchange information using pictures, graphics, charts, and text. Professionals generally use technical posters for conferences or client presentations. Students and Faculty use posters to explain scientific procedures showing the steps in the research process.
Note: Posters are the most interesting when they are Not JUST text. The best posters often use the least text while still conveying the information. The idea of a poster in the first place is to infer information using pictures, charts and diagrams and supplementing these with text.Adding a photo of your research site, the Materials used, or a photo of the research team at work are part of the posters visuals. Charts, diagrams, drawings, and clip art when used properly are self explanatory. Text which uses color, size, or type variations can highlight important points.
