A Research Poster Design | the Final Uni Project Motto Hiragana

BlogLearning Log


About my project

My ambition is to create an interactive online Japanese learning platform with using all the skills I have obtained and will have obtained from undergraduate course. (From personal statement I wrote when I applied to uni)

My final project for uni assignment was developing a prototype for interactive hiragana learning web app. Users can learn and practice writing hiragana by using this app. The project is strongly connected to my personal interest which was the main reason for me to go back to education. I will write project logs in another time.

Designing a research poster

A poster presentation, at a congress or conference with an academic or professional focus, is the presentation of research information in the form of a paper poster that conference participants may view. (Wikipedia)

The poster was designed for university’s degree show, which was like an exhibition showing students’ final project. Typically, a research poster should consists of:

  • introduction
  • methodology
  • results
  • conclusion

Usually, poster size is A0 to A2; however, we were only allowed A3 posters due to limited space. It was very challenging to put information into such a small size as it has to be readable from some distance.

I created infographics in order to put as many research findings as possible, yet, still a lot of them had to be excluded. I focused on displaying results of user research as it was the main findings that helped me to make decisions on features and UI design.


Contents were placed on Z line to create natural flow of eye movements. I placed triangle shape in the background to indicate infographics that placed on top of the shape are reflected in the results. guide readers.
