Guiding questions

  1. 1. Guiding questions By Daniel Silva • How should I Dispose the info on the poster? • Does the use of a wide range of vibrant colors contribute to the understanding of the info or over pollute it? • Which software should I use to create the poster, seen that it can be made in many different forms? • Should I inspire my poster in the format of existing ones, or should I create a completely new one? • What are the main characteristics of a successful poster? • How could I improve my poster, even after having met the end-user`s requirements? • Where is the line in relation to using someone`s existing poster as inspiration and copying?
  2. 2. Answers, According to Research An effective poster is a visual communications tool. the info must be written correctly in grammatical terms, otherwise it`s hard to read the text. The text mustn’t be too big or too small, and the fonts must be simple. Last year’s poster proved the simplicity that a poster requires to work well with the public. A poster works better with a small amount of colors, but appealing. This helps it to be more legible, and eye-catching. I found that using Publisher was a user-friendly software, since Photoshop is too complicated and Paint.net doesn’t have enough features. Copying someone else’s work is a crime, so creating a completely new poster is essential. A
  3. 3. successful poster is simple, creative and its graphics have to be good. I could improve my poster my showing it to other people, and gather their opinion, so I have a real basis for the improvement of my poster. Using a video for assistance when creating the poster is just inspiration, but looking at someone’s poster and editing it is not correct. I think that my sources weren’t biased, as they were mostly instructional, and I used only one source on how to design a poster better. I used 2 YouTube videos to create the poster, an existing school poster to compare my own to it, and a website on poster designing.
