Poster pains

Posted Mar 10 2011 7:22am

Much as I often begin blog posts by staring wistfully at a blank word document for 10 minutes, I’m sure many of you are no stranger to musing over a clean white PowerPoint presentation (if that’s that your software of choice), hoping that a concise and graphically beautiful poster may magically appear. Alas, failing a visit from the poster fairy, the task of planning, designing and constructing a poster can be one of layout pitfalls, questionable colour schemes and type font crimes. This is where you can help…

We, at F1000 Posters , have an exciting line up of events this year which will begin with our very own poster of top tips for making a poster. This will appear in The Scientist magazine, culminating with poster makeovers as well as a competition for the best poster submitted over the autumn conference season.

What we’d like you to do is take a look at some of our existing posters for inspiration, and then comment below with your top tips and suggestions for writing, planning, designing and constructing a poster or, indeed, things to be avoided!

Go on; get it off your chest.
