Illustrations

Since a poster is a visual presentation its success depends on how clear the illustrations and tables are.

  • Use diagrams, flow charts, arrows, and other strategies to direct the viewer. Do not just use text.
  • The graphics should be self explanatory and make up most of the project.
  • Text materials should add to the graphic materials.
  • Use empty space between text to separate and stress your ideas.
  • Graphic materials should be seen easily from a distance of one and a half metres.
  • Use two or three colours.
