Transcript: POSTGRADUATE CONFERENCE RESEARCH PROJECT ACADEMIC RESEARCH POSTER - GOOD PRACTICE OBJECTIVES # OBJECTIVES How to plan your academic poster Good design practice for academic posters Getting Started SCRIPTING Before you consider any other design software, open Microsoft Word. Any word processor will do, but make sure that it has the ability to track your word count and checks your spelling. TARGET AUDIENCE Ask yourself, who is my ideal audience for this poster? Is it other experts in your field, or perhaps the broader public? What is their level of understanding of the subject? This is an important question because if you put a bit of effort into making your poster understandable to the broader public, you automatically increase your potential audience and impact. BULLET POINTS A poster should not look like a paper, therefore, bullet points are your friend. 200-word paragraphs on a poster would discourage even the most motivated, sober, and caffeinated conference attendant. Bullet points on the other hand are a lot less frightening. There is a trend among some academics to slap a solid 200-or-so word abstract right at the top of their posters. Your whole poster is a VISUAL abstract SECTIONS Use sections with headers. Because we are writing with the reader in mind, we want to make the logical flow of the sections as easy as possible for the viewer to follow. My advice is to have large LESS WORDS Less words. The harsh reality is that if your poster is wordy, people will ignore it. Less is definitely more. GRAPHS You need to leave most of them out. You need to carefully select only the very essentials. One or two graphs is better than three or four, and certainly better than eight or nine! STEP 2: CONCEPT Here is where the fun starts. Grab a piece of paper, or open up your design software, and make a first draft. THINK ABOUT A VISUAL CONCEPT PANELS How do we read, left to right or right to left? Top-down or bottom-up? It may seem obvious, but I always see posters that are visually confusing and don’t have a clear directional flow. Start with an enlarged and readable title right at the top, then create a simple layout of panels that make it easy for the viewer to navigate. Remember that we’re committed to keep the reader in mind, so use arrows and numbered headers to help them out. LEAVE SPACES AT THE EDGES Notice the grey space in the images? It’s important to leave some blank space around the edges for a couple of reasons. First, you don’t want to risk important information to be cut off when printing, and second, you don’t want your poster to feel cluttered. This blank space is also known as negative space, and we’re going to unpack this concept more in the next section. STEP 3: DESIGN STEP 3: DESIGN NEGATIVE SPACE Negative space. For some strange reason, many academics feel the need to cover every inch of their poster with text or images. This is the wrong idea! It’s bad because it makes it difficult for the viewer to find the relevant information and to rest their eye. Clear space, also known as negative space, is an super important design concept, one that you should use to your advantage. 40% of your poster should be clear. EYE-CATCHING VISUALS Imagine you’re walking around a poster session, and you’re far enough away from the posters that you can’t read titles or graphs. What will compel you to walk towards a particular poster? It’ll likely be a recognisable image that grabs your attention. Without a big and recognisable image, your poster will look like a fuzzy wall of text and it will likely go unnoticed. Therefore, it’s smart to include one big visual that’s related to your research and has the ability to hook people in from a distance. Be it a rocket, a lion, or an octopus — what matters is that it’s there. COLOUR COLOUR Use a limited number of colours, say three-to-five, and stick with them! Graphs included. My suggestion is that you have two or three shades of a primary colour of your choice, an accent colour that stands out, and a couple of text colours. In a colour scheme of this kind, you can use the accent colour to draw attention to where you want people to look. The important thing is that you use the accent colour in moderation. Let me show you what I mean. COLOUR BACKGROUND IMAGES? FONTS Fonts and font sizes work a bit like colours. That is, the fewer you use, the better. My suggestion is to use only one or two different fonts. Boldface should be used on titles and headlines, while all the rest should be normal. When picking what fonts to use, play it safe. Stick with the classic Arial, Myriad Pro, and other familiar fonts and you can’t go wrong. SOFTWARE Canva (Free online graphics tool) Microsoft PowerPoint Adobe InDesign?

Transcript: Texture Form The color in this poster (also refered to as hue) is very well shown, and you can see what I mean when you look at the different lights in the picture and the colors of the titles. This is very important because it gives a whole different feel of the picture itself. The movie poster shows some balance. It shows it from how the car and the writing is specifically placed on the poster. 8 Elements of Design The eight principles of design will include; line, form, space, shape, texture, color, value, and tone. Form is shown in all the places where there is also some objects and where/how they are arranged. The three principles of Design will be explained to you in this order; balance, proportion, and unity. Description The value is also a thing that is shown very well, because you can see the degree of shadowing and different color brightnesses all around the poster. It is about many cars that compete against each other, and fight for a grand prize. I would say that proportion is shown in the way the car fills up the poster and stays strong. To me, the way that Lamborghini is placed gives me a good feeling about the car and how it would feel like to be in it. So, you can see all the textures on it and around the poster. For example the letters. In conclusion, all the objects and shapes are well fitted together, and placed to stay there peacefully. The Races Begin; Movie Poster Analysis By: Aleksandar Bogdanovic I guess that you could say that space is well used in this poster because in the areas where you see the writing meet with the car itself it looks kind of neat because the space is well used. The recommended rating would be around PG-14. Shape Space The line, that is shown in this movie poster is mostly where the car is touching the ground, but there is also some line used in, where the title and subheadings are. The way you can see this element is where and how the shapes are, and how they are placed there. You can see all the shapes is that Lamborghini and around it as well. 3 Principles of Design This element of design is kind of similar to Value, because it also is about the lightness and darkness in a picture. This one pertains to the lightness and darkness in all the ways you see lighter and darker things mostly in the upper section of this poster. Line Proportion Tone Color Value This movie is similar to the Fast and the Furious movie series; as a result, the genre would be considered to be a drama-action film. Unity Balance

Transcript: ~Thank You~ 6) What skills (for example, leadership, communicative, analytical) do you possess? Interests: My interests have to do a lot with art, math, science, and the universe. I always had a passion to understand everything that is around me. For example the earths geography, stars, the sun, planets, and chemical reactions. Motivation(s): I always had the motivation to make my family proud and be successful and I know my parents want that for me too. Another motivation is failure. Failure always motivates me to do better. High School When growing up, I guess you could say I didn't have family problems, they just have a history of motivating me and by brothers. They like to teach us new things everyday because all they want is for us to have the futures that they never reached. This influence helped me make me who I am...someone is will make my family smile and be proud whenever they see me.

Entertainment/Pocket Funds I believe when I was young; at six or seven years of age, I would learn slower than the other students in my class. I sort of got frustrated that I was never the smart one...even though I tried SUPER hard, so that motivated me like seven years later, to prove that I didn't need help with learning. I guess it helped. :/ Ever since I was born I always had this passion where I loved to learn about life and how things worked. Every time I would go to a science fair or educational presentation, I would always have great interest. I don't know if everyone else is like this but I guess you can classify it as special or unique.

Transcript: In the last two years Northampton Colleges Hair and Beauty Department has changed from a National Vocational Qualification(NVQ) to a Vocationally Related Qualification(VRQ). Changing the qualification although still a recognised one means we are preparing students for industry rarther than them be ready for the shop floor. Once they have completed the VRQ students can move forward and do either the next level or get a job in industry and complete a NVQ, which is competence based. Teaching Delivery Hairdressing Theory is delivered in the salons depending on if a practical task needs to be practiced following the theory given. Hairdressing has a very hands on approach, so delivering theory like this works. In the beauty salons coaches are used to act as desks, fitting two students per bed. The room layout is lines with all students facing forward. This gives good eye contact, the tutor is aware of any students not paying attention but it is also good to see each student and have interation with each and everyone of them. (cc) image by nuonsolarteam on Flickr In the hairdressing department we provide many courses at different age and ability levels. If you are 19+ then no qualifications are needed to apply for a Level 2 course but if you are under 19 years you have to have 4 GCSE's grade D or above or have completed VRQ at level 1 but interviews take place before being offered a place to ensure suitablity and commitment for the course. Attendance needs to be high as it is a very practical subject. On induction to a level two course all students are required to do an initial assessment. At Northampton College this is a BSKB. This highlights any help required in numeracy and Literacy before starting the course so this can be implemented before the course commences. Students are offered provisional timetable choices at induction, there is a little movement on these to try and help students who have work or childcare issues. Beauty Curriculum Hair or Beauty In hairdressing it is highly influenced by the Spiral Curriculum, gaining knowledge and understanding of a technique. Putting newly learnt techniques into practice before building and increasing their knowledge. Although it could also be Co-ordinated Curriculum, a student could be doing functional skills along side their hairdressing course. In the Beauty department interviews take place and a provisional place may be offered but to gain a place on a level 2 course you need to have a minimum of four GCSE's at a D grade or above. Courses run from September and can be one or two years and students can also advance and continue onto level three. Introduction
