Lynn Boyden's Suggestions:

"My only comment would be this: how is it relevant to this audience? See what you can do to make it relate clearly to some aspect of information architecture, whether through discussion of your process (which was an IA initiative, since you designed the wiki and the content and did some user testing, etc.) or through discussion of the purpose, use, and manifestation of the information.


  • How will the wiki benefit the practice of IA?
  • How will it help create new IAs?
  • How will it help new, or nascent, IAs navigate the perilous waters of informatics?
  • How is this poster relevant to them? What does it have to offer?"


What Makes a Good Poster (From Information Architecture Summit 2002)


Poster Presentation:


  • Allow ample time, at least several weeks, to prepare your poster.
  • A good poster is uncluttered and clear in design.
  • It has legible text and logical organization.
  • The main tenet of a good poster design is simplification.
  • Use a crisp, clean design and a strong title.
  • Do not tell the entire project history.
  • Present only enough data to make your key point.
  • The text material should be reduced to convey your points quickly and clearly.


The most successful posters display a succinct statement of major conclusions at the beginning, followed by supporting text in later segments, and a brief summary at the end.
