Poster design tips
Below are some things to consider when creating your ePoster
Make it clear:
Organise your ePoster logically, using headings, subheadings, and bullet points to break up information and make it easy to read.
Make your text easily readable from a distance. Use a sans-serif font, such as Arial, Helvetica, Calibri, or Verdana, in at least a font size of 24 points. Use short paragraphs, bullet points, and avoid long blocks of text.
Use a uniform background colour, text size, text colour, and font throughout your ePoster to help attendees follow the flow of your ideas. Use consistent branding throughout your ePoster, including colours, fonts, and logos.
Colour and contrast:
Use dark text on a light background for readability. If using a dark background, increase font size by two or three points. Leave enough white space between sections of your ePoster to make it visually appealing and easy to read. Don’t clutter your ePoster with too much information.
Use visuals such as photos, charts, and graphs to illustrate key points and make your ePoster more engaging. Icons and symbols can quickly communicate information. For example, use a magnifying glass icon to highlight important data.
Ensure your ePoster provides enough context so attendees can understand your research and findings. Include a clear introduction, methods, results, and conclusion.
Ensure your ePoster is accessible to everyone, including those with disabilities. Use high contrast colours, large font sizes, and descriptive alt text for images.
Check for errors:
Always proofread your ePoster carefully, check for spelling and grammar errors. Also, make sure all information is accurate and up-to-date
