- Organized by
Transferable Skills Program
- Participants will investigate how to apply visual design principles to guide their process of creating scientific graphics
- Participants will learn what sets posters apart from other types of scientific communication
- Participants will explore strategies on how to effectively communicate their research with a scientific poster
- Participants will learn some useful tips and tricks about Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, applicable to scientific visualization
- Participants will sharpen their awareness on which technical pitfalls to avoid (file formats, color spaces and image resolution, text, etc.)
This workshop will provide a hands-on introduction on how to create effective posters and graphics to communicate scientific findings. We will explore some fundamental principles of graphic design and how they can be applied to scientific visualization. More specifically, we will examine how we can exploit these visual considerations when creating a scientific poster. We will actively work on crafting a poster in class, using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, and learn how to integrate visual material from other software. The workshop is divided into three parts (one half-day each):
1) Graphic design principles applied to scientific visualization and posters
2) Hands-on poster creation walk-through
– 2-week break (homework) –
3) Feedback session on individual homework projects
- Group exercises
- Software walk-through
- Group feedback session for homework
Doctoral Candidates & Postdocs interested in creating and presenting scientific posters
