Get Help Making a Poster

DesignLab is a free library service open to UW-Madison students, faculty, and staff to help you design better digital projects. You can make a one-on-one or small group appointment to get help with your poster.

DesignLab staff can help you think through your layout, visualizations, font and color choices, or just be a second set of eyes on your poster before you print.
