Quirky, because I’m a little obsessive about the importance of story telling in posters, whether you are presenting research data or describing what you did last summer. Soup to Nuts Poster Creation in Two and a Half Minutes I’ve been using a rather old (and not very interesting) poster to teach this for the past couple of years, and so this year I thought I’d generate some new material.

Designing conference posters - Colin Purrington. A large-format poster is a big piece of paper or wall-mounted monitor featuring a short title, an introduction to your burning question, an overview of your novel experimental approach, your amazing results in graphical form, some insightful discussion of aforementioned results, a listing of previously published articles that are important to your research, and some brief acknowledgement of the tremendous assistance and financial support conned from others — if all text is kept to a minimum (less than a 1000 words), a person could fully read your poster in 5-10 minutes.

In addition, text that is broken into shorter paragraphs encourages reading, whereas long blocks of text do precisely the opposite.3 Eyetracking studies conducted by the Poynter Institute demonstrated that short paragraphs receive twice as much attention from readers than long paragraphs.4 Example 1 Example 2.
