Description

Would you wear sweatpants to a graduation ceremony? Why not? They're comfortable, easy, and cheap, right? And that's precisely the point: comfortable, easy, and cheap is a wholly inappropriate look for an occasion that honors hard work, commitment, and attention to detail. An academic poster is no different. Why, after devoting untold hours to excellence in research and writing, would you want to send your work out into the world dressed like the guy on the next StairMaster over? Your work deserves better. Creating beautiful, more credible academic posters is mostly a matter of common sense and can be done with familiar software. We’ll look at some very simple guidelines and design ideas that can help make your work visually smashing.
