Title Goes Here Subtitle goes here if needed Author(s), Department(s), Mac. Ewan University Introduction This Power. Point template is an example of how you might design a conference poster. It includes design tips and best practices. Do not make your poster too text-heavy. Use elements to attract people to your poster and quickly communicate your research, e. g. , § Photographs § Tables § Charts § Bulleted lists Software You can create your poster in any preferred program (e. g. , Power. Point, In Design, La. Te. X). Power. Point is recommended since it is available on all campus computers, and is easy to work with. There also many Power. Point poster templates available online to help you get started. Poster Size 36” x 48” is standard. Verify poster size with conference organizers before you start working on your poster. In Power. Point set up the poster size by going to the Design tab>> Slide Size>> Custom Slide Size. Methods Text Make sure your fonts are easy to read: § Text size: 24 -36 point. § Section and sub-headings: larger (e. g. 48 point). § Captions and labels: smaller (e. g. 22 point). Conclusions Colour and Layout Printing § Use colour to highlight and organize information. § Avoid using too many different colours or an overly “busy” design. Keep it simple! § Use contrast. Make sure your text is easy to read against any background colours. Results Using Images § Use high resolution images (300 dpi). § Avoid using web captures—these often turn out blurry when printed. § Put a thin outline around photos so they stand out from the background. § Include a caption & any credits beneath photos. Using Tables and Charts: § Ensure tables and charts match your colour scheme. § Always include a caption. Title of Table Example § Pixabay https: //pixabay. com § Morgue.
