  • Guide to Effective Displays Grade 6 Exhibition
  • Three basic steps to planning a successful display:
    • Before you begin, you must..
    • Know your target audience
    • Know the purpose of your display
    • Plan to involve your audience
  • Know your audience:
    • Ask yourself:
    • Who are the people who will see your display?
    • Why would they be interested in looking at your display? What will draw them to it?
    • How can you get and hold their attention?
    • Is your topic relevant to them?
    • Will your display stimulate “mental” participation?
  • How do you get their attention?
    • Cater to your audience – put the most important visuals at eye level…
    • For adults – put them at their level with content relevant to them (facts, graphs, statistics etc.)
    • Put visuals lower at the eye level for younger students to grab their attention
    • (comics, interesting photos)
  • Know your purpose
    • What message are you trying to convey?
    • What results do you expect to achieve?
    • What do you want your audience to go away thinking?
    • What action are you taking?
    • How can you persuade your audience to take
    • similar action?
  • Involve your audience
    • Arouse interest – get their attention
    • Make your display “hands-on” if appropriate
    • Use visuals, perform demonstrations
    • Hand out brochures, information/fact sheets, bookmarks, pins etc.
    • Quiz your audience to find out their prior knowledge about your topic
  • “ The impact of your display will be strengthened if your audience feels part of it”
  • Encourage all types of participation
  • Make a point with 3D display
  • Arouse interest
  • Stimulate thought
  • Make a statement
  • Use images to tell a story
  • Which poster explains Jack’s dog the best? Jack’s Dog Jack has a dog. His dog’s name is Petey. Petey is a pug.
  • Avoid images for decoration & a lot of text
  • This poster is more to the point
  • Make your display interesting
    • Suggestions:
    • Simulate scenes – fish tank, chicken coop, raw cotton, food items
    • Make a 3D display
    • use colour to set the mood
  • Use authentic display items
  • Evoke a feeling or mood with colour
  • Be creative!
  • Use interesting display materials
  • Think differently!
  • Add interesting features for authenticity and to attract attention
  • Create an environment to involve the audience
  • Create 3D displays if relevant
  • Think UNITY
  • All visuals must have a purpose and relate to each other
  • Create flow…
    • Help the audience know the direction of your display
    • What do you want them to see first?
    • Where do they go from there?
    • Achieve this by using arrows, filmstrips etc.
  • Make your display organized and easy to “read”
  • Use arrows to direct your audience
  • Lettering
    • Use upper case letters for short titles ONLY
    • Lower case is better for longer texts
    • Don’t mix letter styles – choose one main one and one for headings
    • Headings must be read from 8’ away
    • text from 3’ away
  • Font style must match the display

    • orange is 9X more visible
    • green is 7X times more visible
    • red is 5X more visible
    • blue is 3X more visible
