Tips for Creating Your Poster


MSU's Poster Presentation Resource Tips - and located on 2-West of MSU's Main Library, staff can help you with questions about your poster and producing it!  

Better Posters - (blog, updated weekly) - Academics use posters to present research, but their posters are often ugly, with tiny text, confusing layouts, and dubious colour schemes. Better Posters is about making posters informative and beautiful.

Surviving Your First ACS Undergraduate Presentation  (American Chemical Society) - these tips apply generally to all fields! 


Creating Effective Poster Presentations  - (North Carolina State University)  provides instructions for step-by-step development of effective posters and offers great examples of posters done for research. The authors address planning and development, software options, formatting and layout. In addition, poor poster techniques are discussed.
