Designing Effective Academic Posters

Clear at Glance - Successfully Communicate your Research at the Next Virtual or Physical Event
Poster sessions are an integral part of almost every scientific conference. Their purpose is to highlight research results, visualize them and stimulate discussion. To draw your audience in, you need a crystal-clear message, a text format optimized for best legibility, well-chosen graphics and above all, a convincing layout for a printed or digital format.

Basic rules of graphic design help you to arrange your research visually well-ordered and compelling. The workshop also provides time for practice and feedback - participants come away from the course with a designed or redesigned poster.

Creating Interactive Scientific Posters - Benefits and Challenges
The workshop covers the basic knowledge how to conceive and design an effective interactive e-poster. E-Posters provide the opportunity to fully utilise the power of the electronic medium - such as audio, video, hyperlinks, enlarged graphics as well as to extend the limited format of a traditional paper poster. A vital benefit, that could make your poster far more engaging and informative for the audience.

»It was a great course, I don't have any suggestions for improvement, I'm absolutely content. Thank you for all the interesting inputs and your effort!«

target-oriented
Concept + Design + Presentation = 100% Knowledge Transfer
Among other challenges researchers are requested to communicate their work and knowledge to a wide range of various audiences by the means of posters and presentations. Moreover, right now researchers should be well prepared for a poster presentation even at a virtual conference.

The workshop conveys and trains the major skills how to conceptualize, visualize and finally present scientific content in a target-oriented, accessible and compelling manner and takes into focus how closely design and presentations skills must be linked to successfully convey academic knowledge.

Boost your Design Skills to Successfully Communicate your Knowledge
The workshop conveys the compelling usage of graphical elements (typography, image, colour) and the application of the key principles of graphic design (proportion, alignment, focal point, etc.) to professionally present academic content.

In combination with an introduction how to use essential design tools of Adobe InDesign, participants have the opportunity to train their design skills hands-on, as well as to get the best out of their drafts, by analysing and discussing with group and trainer during the practice session.

Memorable, Illustrative, Attention-Grabbing
The application of images, graphics and visualisations is the best way to enhance the comprehensibility and memorability of data and complex academic content - a reason why they are worth the effort to be designed as compelling and illustrative as possible.

The workshop shows you how to improve your visual aids by effectively applying type, shape, line, colour, space etc. and offers you the possibility to gain a basic knowledge on how visual perception works at its best.

Webinar - Designing Effective Academic Posters - Graduate Academy Dresden, May 2020
»It was important for me to understand the fundamental aspects of designing an academic poster and the trainer did an excellent job in communicating this information.«
Birgit LukowskiCommunication is Key
mindful
Based upon my extensive teaching experience in visual communication and in various academic contexts, all workshop concepts are developed offering you practice-oriented knowledge and practical training to conceptualize, design and present research content effectively and in a visually pleasing manner.

My approach is built upon the cornerstone that successful and target-oriented communication always requires the perfect interplay of three components: reasoned conception, excellent design skills and strong presentation competencies.
