Posters With an Artistic Flair

Ellerbee, Susan M. PhD, RNC, IBCLC


Posters are a popular medium used in the classroom and at conferences. Most published and Internet resources focus on the technical aspects of poster creation. The artist's perspective has rarely been addressed. The author fills that gap by presenting color theory and a balanced appearance as important elements to be considered. Specific technical and artistic considerations are presented.
