    • writing| VISUALIZATION| Speaking Posters that don’t suck
    • Be BRIEF!
    • Don’t be P&J!
    • keep your text to a minimum
    • The human eye can only read so much text in a given block before wanting to die a painful death. Keep your text blocks to a minimum (size and content), lest dead bodiespile up near your poster.
    • 1 | Title 2 | Intro 3 | Materials/Methods 4 | Results 5 | Conclusions 6 | Acknowledgements/Info
    • Abstract
    • 1 | Title Title, formatted in sentence case, that hints at something interesting. Not Title Case NOT ALL CAPS sans serif jargon is not interesting…
    • 2 | Intro You have two sentencesto hook a reader. Use it wisely. serif font from here on out Figure 1. Wisely can mean using a graphicin the intro. It’sa poster, not a paper. Who looks awesome?
    • If they really want details, they will contact you. Keep thisbrief. How about some visual stimulusor interaction? 3 | Materials/Methods seriously. enter graphics enter technology
    • Paragraph format isfine, but bullet lists work aswell. Just keep it readable. KISS:  vs.  Layout is key here! 4 | Results
    • Don’t just recap your results: these are for the conclusions, the ah ha! M oments. Thissection should be readable by itself. Talking points! Many people start reading here, so recap a bit. 5 | Conclusions Make sure to cover “What’s next?”
    • Literature cited. Acknowledgements. Further Information. Contact information. I am a librarian. Don’t make me hunt you down. Seriously. 6 | Acknowledgements/Info
    • 1 | Title 2 | Intro 3 | Materials/Methods 4 | Results 5 | Conclusions 6 | Acknowledgements/Info
    • Poster ≠ Paper
    • If this is your template…
    • This follows the advice. Sort of.

    • Use CONTRAST
    • Dark Background Light Background
    • High Contrast low Contrast
    • Don’t do this! My future car: DB8 Totally badass Because I love it
    • Bad Color Choices  Avoid loud, garish colors…  Avoid text colors that fade into background, i.e. blue and black  Avoid color-blind combinations: – Red and green – Blue and yellow • Did you know blue/red appears fuzzy?
    • Check contrast & Color in grayscale
    • Bad Color Placement
    • Image Is Everything
    • Resolution Matters
    • 72 dpi…
    • 300 dpi…
    • What’syour Publication DPI?
    • Your Badass Image is Meaningless without Scale bar, Magnification or Description
    • Graphs & Charts
    • Give Short, Descriptive Titles
