When creating posters it is important to note that it is the first opinion should influence the viewer and to create the effect of "a passing glance", in which the viewer instantly sees the information on the advertised topic and decides to meet him with the information closer. Therefore, considerable attention is paid to composition, colours and text. Correctly decide on the location for the posters. Perhaps this is most crowded place of the intended target audience of your event (for example, in front of the University building) or the place where a large number of people.
Start with what you write on a sheet of paper all the text data that will be on your poster.
Invent a memorable title your event, which reflects the essence of an announced event.
Write a brief summary of the event - a short text that carries the information about the event. Ideally, if it consists of one sentence, maximum of 3 sentences. The text should not be boring explanation. It can be a famous quote or slogan.
Specify the date, time and place of the event.
Make a list of the participants and sponsors of the event.
If necessary, add the cost of tickets and information about the dress code. For example, if your Billboard invites you to visit the carnival, you can write that entrance in masks.
Do not forget to specify contact information for more information. Perhaps it will be a phone number or website address where you can get more information about the event.
Now we can start directly to work on the poster.
Lay a sheet of drawing paper so that you feel comfortable to work with him on the floor or on the table.
The background is the base of the Billboard. Can leave it white, you can paint in one color or picture background picture. Importantly, the background was not spotted, it should be clearly visible all the text.
Big, beautiful and clearly write at the top of the sheet the event name. For example, this can be done in the following way: the first line is not very large print - "Christmas masquerade", the second line very large capital letters - "MYSTERIOUS NIGHT."
Called, center, write the date and time in the same style and the same size as the text in the first line.
Further, in the left part, indicate the location and contact details underneath.
At the same height on the right side write a brief summary of the event.
In the bottom of the page will post information about the sponsors. This information is not required to read from a distance and conspicuous, but it should be quite readable at close range.
On the remaining free space in the center of the sheet in a column write the composition of participants, and under them the tickets and information about the dress code.
Decorate the poster with pictures. If you have pictures of some of the participants or suitable for the theme of pictures – will post them in artistic disorder on the free space on both sides of the list of participants.
The poster of your event ready.
