Creating research posters

Text

  • Minimize use – think VISUAL

  • Bulleted lists preferred over paragraphs

  • Should be readable from 1-2 m (3-6 ft)

  • Organize in blocks

    • Columns help organize the organization

  • Not too big, not too small


Charts

Charts

  • Avoid “Chart Junk”

  • Use Headings that describe results
