  1. Plan the project

    Before you start to make the poster, you need to plan it. Review any project requirements such as size or composition. Also, think about the theme of your poster and how you can communicate that theme visually.

  2. Decide on a title

    The title should be simple but informative, and it should convey what your project is about. Put the title on the poster board before any other elements. Make sure that the title is evenly spaced and that it is big enough to read from a distance.

  3. Add the content

    Gather any text and images you want to use, and lay them out on the poster board. Make sure that everything is correct before you start to glue the pieces down. If you are writing text by hand, write each section on a separate sheet of paper, and then attach the sheets to the poster. This way, you do not have to start a new poster if you make an error.

  4. Decorate the poster

    Consider adding some decorations. You can add some color or put a border around the edge to make your project interesting and unique.
