The poster's format can vary depending on how much space you are given. Check what measurements are permitted and if the poster needs to be horizontal or vertical in orientation before you begin designing.

Don't have too much text or paragraphs that are too lengthy. The poster should be a quick overview of your research project and encourage the reader to be interested to learn more. Use titles and images or tables. Use left-justified text. Avoid acronyms and include logos.
