General Poster Design Tips

  • Above all, your poster should be easily readable from at least 4-5 feet away. Suggested font sizes are at least 72 point for your title, 48 point for your headings, and around 36 point for your text.
  • Do not use script fonts that are difficult to read.
  • Use color. You want your poster to catch your audience’s attention while looking streamlined and professional.
  • You might use color on graphics, headings, text blocks, borders around text, etc. Posters elements (text and graphics) are often laid out into 3-4 columns.
  • Posters are typically read from top to bottom then left to right.
  • You may refer to these Poster Templates (if needed).
