Creating Effective Posters

This is a past event

Whether you are designing a research poster for an academic conference or a poster to promote an upcoming event, you want your poster to make a statement.


In this workshop, explore the basic design principles and techniques of an effective poster, and then apply those principles to make posters that stand out using PowerPoint. You will learn about templates, resolution, printing and online resources, and review examples of effective and ineffective posters.


Amanda McCollom, assistant librarian and multimedia literacy coordinator, will lead the workshop. The workshop is co-sponsored by the University Writing Centers.

This workshop is open to UD students, faculty and staff. Registration is required as seating is limited.


This is the first of two workshops focused on poster design and co-sponsored by the University Writing Centers. The second workshop, Research Poster Design, takes place Tuesday, April 23, at 2 p.m.
