The success of a poster is related to the clarity of its text, illustrations, and data.

One way to add meaning to your poster is to use images.
Use Images Wisely
Don't let your images (and a fancy poster) detract from your research findings. Your images and graphs should highlight your research and add something- not just serve as place fillers.
Charts and Graphs
Always include captions for any charts or graphs you use to explain your research findings.
Cite your Images
Be sure to give credit for all images and graphics you use in your poster, even if you took them yourself.
Recommended File Types
Use PNG, TIF or JPEG files.
Choose a simple yet dynamic color scheme before you begin to add content. We recommend sticking with the colors that complement the ones already in the template you use. You can also choose from the color schemes in PowerPoint or utilize online color scheme generators. Here are a few websites that specialize in pre-made color palletes:
Some text and background color combinations are problematic.
