An effective poster is a visual communication tool.  

An effective poster will help you ... engage collegues in conversation ... and get your main point across to as many people as possible, quickly.

This site is designed to help you get there!

In a really big hurry?

Hone your main message and make it your title.

Keep your poster visual ... images, graphs, maps.

Use text minimally (use big text).
