Poster Design

se to create your poster.
• Keep in mind particular requirements for your field or
conference
The Basics
• A poster is a visual presentation. Do NOT reproduce your written paper
• The research should speak for itself. You shouldn’t have to explain your poster
• You want to catch the audiences attention
• It should showcase your original question and your findings
• Make sure title & authors name are prominent
• Include Contact Info & References
• Tell a Story – with a clear flow of information
• Be Brief and focus on major findings
• Use images, graphs, tables etc.
Design Notes
• Use all the space. White space is important
• Use color sparingly
• Clear – flow of information
• Clearly label diagrams/drawings
• Font size
• Keep word count as low as possible
• When representing GC: Always use. “Georgia College &
State University”
