You are likely aware of using Microsoft PowerPoint for making slides for a presentation. In addition to presentations, you can use PowerPoint for designing posters as well. Although not everyone thinks of designing posters in PowerPoint, it is a very easy process, especially if you need a poster urgently, and or do not have any other software readily available.
You can use posters made in PowerPoint in academic settings for assignments, event promotions on campuses, and general display purposes.
You can use one of two methods for designing your poster:
- Design the poster from scratch
- Use a template
However, before you start on the design, we recommend you think about the poster in detail. You may need to plan for:
- The size of the Poster
- Background image for the poster
- Text in the Poster
- Any logo
- Any other graphics or images
Preferably, collect all the above in a folder before starting on the design.
We will take you through the steps of how to make a poster in PowerPoint.
