Spring 2020 Poster Presentations

The Spring 2020 end-of-semester poster session will be held virtually. One option is for students to create their poster as a PPT slide, and then show this slide to the class as they talk through their Service Learning Project.

Design Tips

Tips for creating a professional looking poster:


  • 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.).  


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


  • 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. 
  • Use a standard font common to both Macs and PCs.


Need additional design help?

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