Constructing an effective academic poster is both an art and a science. This workshop will cover both aspects of academic poster design, providing helpful hints on how to create a poster that is both eye-catching and informative.

In this session, you will learn:

  • a step-by-step poster design workflow
  • how to manage and organize images and content
  • artistic design strategies
  • various computer software tools
  • on and off campus printing options
