Expert Poster Review

Your Complimentary Design Review
  • Does your poster make the best use of space, font, and color?
  • Does it conform to design best practices? Would you like it to?

Well, good news! 

We’re offering one hour of complimentary design review for up to 8 of our poster presenters! 

How the process works.
  • By Friday, March 13, we’ll let submitters know if their posters are accepted for presentation at the conference. 
  • If your poster is accepted, you’ll have the option of being included in the drawing for complimentary design service
  • If you tell us you’re interested in having your poster reviewed, we’ll enter your name into the March 23 drawing. 
  • We’ll contact you if your name is among the 8 selected and connect you with Gilberto (Gil) Velazquez, our health literacy design consultant.
How Gil adds value.

With over 20 years’ experience as a professional graphic designer, Gil knows a thing or two about poster presentations. Better still, he applies health literacy principles to ensure that content is clear, concise, and easy-to-use.

Gil will evaluate the overall poster layout to ensure that it can be read and interpreted at a comfortable distance. He will pay special attention to content density and will consider the use of fonts, colors, imagery, tables, and graphics. 

Upon completion (usually within 6 business days or less) Gil will provide you with recommendations for improving your poster’s design and format—recommendations that, ultimately, will result in a conclusive message for your audience.
