Presentation Transcript

  1. posters To do or not to do… that’s not quite the right question, but you’ll get the point later

  2. General rules of poster design Keep it clean and simple –save details for answering questions 84 pt. 48 pt. 24 pt.

  3. Bad Layout Your poster need not be symmetrical, but it should not look random or chaotic

  4. BETTER layout May appear “dull” but at least I know where I should be looking next, what belongs together

  5. “Rule of Thirds” (feel free to Google) Rule of Thirds

  6. Which image follows the rule?

  7. Portrait as well as Landscape

  8. Color & White Space • Design using colors that work together • PPT “Themes” • Match graphs, text, pictures, colors in maps • Don’t cover entire poster w/ text or graphics • “white” = “empty” • Allows viewers to stay focused

  9. A judged competition: UVa Examples from the University of Virginia Presidential Inauguration Had a fixed template Received a cash award… Which do you like best? http://www.virginia.edu/inauguration/postercompetition.html

  10. Final Reminders • Take advantage of the visual medium • Pix, charts, graphs, figures, etc. • Illustrate your main points • Don’t put too much text on the poster! • 4-5pp, 20pt font, double-spaced • Can I understand your research from the poster alone? • Engaging, pretty, informative, & easy to understand • EPIEu • Balance… Rule of 1/3s… Color & Whitespace
