Design specifications

  • The E-poster needs to be created as per the example format attached
    • Each slide title should be placed in a title placeholder
    • The text should include Introduction, Aim, Methods, Results, Conclusion and Acknowledgements
  • The poster should be self-explanatory. Text should be brief and well organize
  • It is suggested that font size of the text should be at least 28 point. The typeface chosen should be a simple and clear one (e.g. Helvetica, Calibri, Arial, Tahoma)
  • Color suggestions:
    • When using light backgrounds (white, yellow, light blue) we suggest using dark fonts (black, navy blue, dark green)
    • When using dark backgrounds (blue, purple) we suggest using light fonts (white, yellow, cyan)
    • Avoid using red or green in any fonts or backgrounds as they are colors that are difficult to read
