Poster Help!

posterHave an upcoming poster session and need help designing your poster? Colin Purrington, a former Swarthmore College evolutionary biology professor turned photographer and graphic designer, has a great blog post on the subject.  He offers tips on how to approach the layout, decide what to include on the poster, elicit feedback form colleagues,  “add flair”, and present your poster.  He also includes Powerpoint and Apple Keynote poster templates, an example of a terrible poster, and a lengthy do’s and don’ts list for creating an effective poster.

Purrington’s post is helpful, comprehensive, amusing and certainly worth a look:
