rhetorical purpose
Rhetorical Purpose
  • Who is my audience?
    • Mixed-discipline
  • What is my purpose?
    • To get my audience to read my paper and/or ask for more information
  • For what situation/context do I compose?
    • A setting ripe for information overload. Don’t give viewers additional distractions.
  • What are the conventions of the genre?
    • Visual short-hand. Less is more.
pivotal design question
Pivotal Design Question

Acknowledge the limits of your influence: You have 30 seconds at a distance to convey your message.

Ask: If the viewer remembers only one thing about my work, what will it be?

en title ment
Entitlement
  • Convey a tangible, purpose-oriented message with as few words as possible.
  • Consider adding a sub-title if presenting a complex message
  • Consider forming a provocative question in lieu of statement title
headers
Headers

Headings serve two purposes:

  • Provide order to the message
  • Convey key points or sections, such as Research Design/Methods, Findings, etc.

To be effective, consider:

  • Typeface: Sans Serif
    • Helvetica, AvantGarde, Franklin Gothic
  • Size: Readable from a distance (4 feet away)
  • Color: Contrast but clear and readable
layout concerns
Layout Concerns
  • Clear progression, usually by columns from left to right
  • Sectioned: Avoid one long stream of text
  • Ample white space between items
  • Cropped with straight edges (don’t “eyeball alignment)

  • Instead of hand-constructing your poster, you can use PowerPoint to create one that you then have printed by a professional company.
  • In the alternative, you can use PPT to print sections of the poster, which you hand position on poster-board.
