Poster resource: Better posters blog

Posted May 19 2011 12:00am

I am in the midst of generating posters for the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians (CAEP) conference. My residents and I came across this resourceful site about making them.

Better Posters

This site is full of tips to make scientific posters cleaner and more informative. I particularly like when he offers suggestions to sample posters.

Tips we learned from the site
  • Colour scheme: choose colours so they are consistent, but not too much gray.
  • Font matters: San serif fonts are easier to read, just like in slides. He happens to like Gill Sans, which is my favorite presentation font.
  • Text should align.
  • White spaces are essential. Try not to crowd the text.
  • Some presenters now insert a QR code to embed more content, maybe a video or a website link when the code is scanned by a smartphone.
