Suggestions • A great poster is readable, legible, well organized and succinct. The Science and Engineering Library at UB has compiled a list of excellent web resources to help you create an effective poster. It can be found at: (http://ublib.buffalo.edu/libraries/asl/guides/bio/posters). • Visibility: Use large enough fonts for subtitles and text so that the poster can be read from approximately 2-3 feet away. Avoid the use of script fonts that are difficult to read. All figures and tables should have brief captions. • Organization: Should be read from top to bottom, left to right. The next slide provides a suggested format.
