Poster Design and Elements

Main elements of a poster include: title, brief introduction and highlights of the research idea(s), conclusions, methods and results, literature cited, references and acknowledgements. Here is a sample poster design to review.

  • Self-explanatory graphics should dominate the poster. A minimum amount of text materials should supplement the graphic materials.
  • Print should be readable three to six feet away.
  • Use font sizes proportional to importance.
  • Be sure to edit and evaluate your content before printing.
  • Common dimensions for posters are 24x36, 36x42 and 42x42. Portrait or landscape orientation is acceptable; none of the dimensions should exceed 42".
  • No matter what software you design your poster in, adjust the size so it scales and prints well. When saving your final document, be sure to save it as a PDF (if you are having it printed at the Raynor library)
