Did you know Gladstone has templates that can take the guesswork out of creating a scientific poster? Templates are available in a variety of sizes to fit different poster session requirements.

Join this session of Design Lab to learn where to find the poster templates and hear from experts about best practices for using them for your next project. Watch a live demo to pick up tips for using PowerPoint tools in the template to format text, create text hierarchy, import images and graphics, and learn the preferred ways to make your poster look great when it’s printed.

Then, in an open Q&A, pick the experts’ brains! This will be the perfect time to ask about how the Communications team can help with printing your poster or any other questions related to the design pain points you’re experiencing.

Who Can Attend?

Design Lab is geared toward investigators and trainees who have any level of design experience. Some familiarity with design or illustration software is ideal, but the principles covered are universal and can be implemented with any software.

Need PowerPoint?
