Tips for Poster Designs

Below are some tips for creating a professional looking poster:

Color:

  • Do no use a black background with white text: It does not print well.
  • Pick a simple color scheme.  Two to three colors tend to be enough. 
  • Use color strategically to highlight areas of your poster (headers, tables, etc.).  

Images:

  • Try to have at least one image: picture, table, graph, etc.
  • Use high res images that won't pixelate when printed.

Fonts:

  • Pick a simple font scheme.  Fonts for headers can be different than what is used in the body of the text, but be consistent.
  • Choose a clear, easy to read, professional font.  Posters should be easy to read from a distance of four plus feet. 
  • Use a standard font common to both Macs and PCs: Custom fonts will not print correctly

Need additional design help?

  • Contact Katherine Keller at the TDRL to set up a design consultation.
