A Quick Reference Guide for Creating a Presentation Poster The purpose of a presentation poster is to display projects in a professional, clear and intriguing way that grabs the reader’s attention. It should also allow for comprehension by the general population of readers. The Dos and Don’ts of poster making Do: • Allow yourself enough time to complete the poster. One week minimum. This will also permit enough time for others to proofread it. • Use no less than a 36-point font for text, 88-point font for the title, and 40-50 point fonts for authors. • Font should be a sans serif type, such as arial. • Choose 2-3 primary colors and consistently use them throughout the poster. • Use strong primary colors for best contrast. • Avoid patterned backgrounds. • Avoid wordiness by using bulleted or numbered lists. • Include references using APA format. This shows that you have done your homework, and that you are being credible in your research. • Use a chronological sequence of progression in your project.
