Title (or Header): Is it large enough to be seen from a distance?
Is there sufficient space between our title and our body content?
Introduction: Look at how it matches our conclusion. We have accentuated it by increasing the leading, and we’ve boxed out each section to create balance and harmony in our poster.
Columns: When using columns, force justify the content in your text block.
Don’t hyphenate words and reflow the text to eliminate this.
Never leave a single word on its own in a line at the end of a paragraph.
Graphs and images: Always oversize graph labels, so that they can be seen from a distance.
Always include a caption for all graphs and images.
Try putting a one pixel black border line around all photographs, and make sure all logos are print resolution ready.
Fonts + Colours: Limit your choice of fonts to two; one for the header and one for the body copy and limit your use of colours to two or three - remember that less is more.
