♦ When and where we use posters?
Posters are used for giving information to a large group of people. A poster is not printed in a newspaper, but, like a notice, is put in a public place where many people can see it. Posters are used for giving information/publicity to cultural events. They are also used by the government, municipal authorities or NGOs to educate the common public about important issues.

Main Features of a Poster:
- catchy title
- sketch or simple visuals
- fonts of different shapes and sizes
- description/details related to the theme
- essential details, for example, date, time, venue
- names, i.e., issuing authority, organisers
- organising and sequencing of content
- appropriate language
- creativity (language and design)
Posters recreate the basic moods and styles of three modes of communication, i.e., notices, advertisements, and invitations. They should, thus, be so designed so as to captivate the onlookers. To achieve this, the poster must use bold and capital letters, striking designs. Catchy phrases and slogans are the lifeline of posters.
Posters can broadly be classified into the following categories:
- cultural show/exhibition/seminar/workshop/fair/fete etc.
- educational and student’s activities
- social theme/problems
