Beyond the SEA: Drab to Fab: Making Conference Posters Pop! – April 19, 2017, 12:00PM ET
Date/Time: Wednesday, April 19, 2017, 12:00 ET
Presenter: Thom Pinho, Instructional Technology Specialist, University of Maryland, Baltimore
Contact: For additional information or questions, please contact Nancy Patterson.
Presentation Summary: Visual communication is a key component of outreach and education. Too often, the message and meaning of a poster gets lost in the flotsam and jetsam of templates and textboxes. This webinar will focus on tips and tools available freely to you to use for enhancing your presentations and adding impact to your message. We’ll explore some past designs and exhibits and discuss what works well about them, and what could be done differently. We’ll discuss some design principles to remember like visual hierarchy and visual tension; we’ll address distilling content and information chunking; and we’ll take on sourcing and creating graphic elements.
Presenter Bio: Thom Pinho has been making information visually appealing at the Health Sciences and Human Services Library for 10 years and has been working as a freelance designer for the better part of 20 years. Prior to his tenure with the University of Maryland, Baltimore, Thom spent a decade training graphic design professionals the ins-and-outs of tricky software and design gymnastics. Recently, Thom’s been working closely with Library faculty to develop a best-practices poster design workshop to run in conjunction with the new poster printing service he spearheaded.
Upon completion of the Beyond the SEA Webinar, each participant will receive 1.0 hour of continuing education credit awarded by the Medical Library Association. Certificates will be available electronically following completion of the online survey supplied at the end of the webinar.
