    • 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
    • Visibility of colour for lettering
      • purple is the LEAST visible colour
      • yellow is 12X more visible than purple
      • orange is 9X more visible
      • green is 7X times more visible
      • red is 5X more visible
      • blue is 3X more visible

    • Can you read this? Can you read this? Can you read this? Can you read this? Can you read this? Can you read this?
    • Can you read this? Can you read this? Can you read this? Can you read this? Can you read this? Can you read this?
    • Differences
      • Show with different background colours
      • Use black and white photos vs colour
    • Mounting your visuals

      • NO notes displayed except in your journal
    • Display pictures at different levels and ALWAYS straight NO pictures on angles!
    • Borders must be the same around art

    • Think Safety

      • Do not block other students’ stalls
      • Keep walkways clear
      • Let your teacher know in advance special requirements
    • Display considerations
      • Display must fit the space
      • Make a list of what you need – fabric measured, chairs, special display materials
      • Make arrangements to get them early
      • Make a sketch of your display booth along with a detailed plan.

      • Remember – a great display is nothing without you being knowledgeable about your issue.
