Some Suggestions on How to Prepare a Good Poster
Design Clear and Concise Messages
A poster that is overcrowded is unattractive and difficult to read. When showing results, present only those information that illustrate the main findings of the project when. Choose simple words and avoid long sentences.
Easy to Read From a Distance
The text of your poster should be large enough and easily read from a distance of 1.5 to 2 m. Suitable display size ranges from 19 pt for text to 70 pt for title. Here is the suggested guide:
· Use 20 pt for text 70 pt for your title
· For good contrast, chose a bolder font
· Do not use all UPPER CASE as it makes your poster difficult to read
A Picture Paints a Thousand Words
Use graphs (instead of tables) to present numerical data
