Poster design and print media gallery

Designing a poster - the very basic principles for clarity and aesthetics.

The Principles of Design are focusing on the relationships of the elements of design to each other in order to create a useful and beautiful final unitary product. So think about harmony, rhythm and emphasis encircled in the concepts of information flow and aesthetics.

 The old school rules in poster graphic design (isn't that nice.... but it's lame! )

A color scheme of one or two colors
Consistent Alignment
The use of text boxes
The poster should be arranged in columns
The font size should be 24pt to larger typefaces, as 28pt
Black text on white backgrounds.

Now think about some principles from visual neuroscience or whatever you want: the pop-up effect, color contrast and the role of colors in visual perception. An alignment of the poster elements based on boxes does not create an aesthetic visual rhythm, but only a fragmented understanding, the columns never guarantee an information flow that helps perception and the font size should be relative to the poster dimensions... so 24pt text on a A0 poster or an A3 poster has different visibility properties.  Print paper size Wiki

Poster Graphics Design Principles and Pictures

The eye is always drawn first to the pictures on the poster.

First the central image or graphic, then the captions. After this attention catch, the consumer will look for the headlines and sub-headings. Use nice typo!

Put in the poster headlines some detail about the subject of your work or event.

Professional poster printing is important! Destroy a poster by using low-quality support!

Now remember that:

Good design is innovative, so step away from the boring "safe design area".

Good design makes the poster useful, so create an information/perception flow.
Good design makes the information understandable, so integrate graphs and text, not just intercalate graphs and text.
Good design means beauty, and beauty means success! 
Good design is long lasting, be sure that you'll be proud of your poster now and five years from now. To be sure of that, get help from a professional graphic designer with some experience in the field.
