Some TIPS
  • If no one CAN read it, no one WILL read it
  • If no one WANTS to read it, no one WILL read it
  • MAKE IT READABLE
  • MAKE IT INTERESTING

18
Why readability is important
  • Readability is important! If no one CAN read
    your poster then no one WILL read your poster. If
    you shrink your text down like this you can get
    more words on the page, sure, but you lose
    information because it will tire out your
    readers eyes. Besides, your reader has probably
    seen a dozen posters before yours, and if yours
    isnt easy on the eyes then he or she will not
    pause to pay attention to your work.
  • Also, you should do what you can with color to
    help make your poster readable. Bright colors
    like the white stripe at the top of this page are
    a good idea to get peoples attention, however,
    you must use them judiciously because they can
    also dazzle and overwhelm the reader. All they
    remember is colors, and not your conclusion.
  • Large tables are generally a poor choice. It
    doesnt matter how much data you put up on a
    poster if no one will look at it. For instance
  • If you read that, youve got better eyesight than
    I do. Graphs with a summary statement often work
    more effectively. For instance, the above text
    indicates that whole sediments have slower
    phenanthrene respiration than enrichment
    cultures, and that other than that, all of the
    above experiments have similar characteristics.

19
Enhancing Readability
  • LARGE SUMMARY STATEMENTS
  • Good vs. garish use of color
  • Panels vs. large format printers
  • Graphics vs. text. 1000 words!

Use Graphics Where Possible
