Who likes and appreciates
the simplicity of my writing style.
A Poster is a combination of Notice, Advertisement and Invitation. Posters inform us about the happening of an event or something else and motivate us to get involved in that event. They enkindle people’s imagination and influence their minds.
A Poster is generally bigger and bolder in size and space than Notice. So its display should be well-spread. Slogans, maxims, rhyming lines are used to boost their effectiveness and make them eye-catching.
There are some salient features of Poster Writing, such as-
1. A Poster should have a catchy title.
2. Posters are generally written in bold type highlighting the main message.
3. They are written in catchy words and phrases. Full sentence is not generally used.
4. Posters should be brief using fewest possible words.
5. It should bear all the necessary details as- time, date, venue, duration etc. of the event.
6. Name of the contact person or sponsor of the event may be given.
7. It should not exceed the prescribed word limit. Usually the words limit is 50.
8. Ornate work and striking design are two important features of a good Poster.
9. The language used should be correct and appropriate.
10. The theme should be clear.
11. Use of imagination in designing a Poster makes it catchy and effective.
12. Contents should be organised in an appropriate style.
13. Catchy photo or image of the related event may be used.
14. A Poster should be as dignified as can be put up at a public place. It must catch the attention of the passersby.
