Cut the chitter chatter
A poster should NEVER have too much text. People do not get amazed by text; instead they are moved by the visuals of the poster. The more Artwork and vibrancy of the poster the more attention it is likely to grab. Once the poster has grabbed the interest of the customer, it is then more likely the customer will in their free time research further about the promotion. A good idea if you’re worried about the lack of information on your poster is to add a QR code, that way after you have captured the prospects attention, they will have a link to research and react to the promotion
The reason Why so many people walk past posters without noticing it is because most of them are very generic. When creating a poster, it is important not copy trends. When you do that your poster falls in the pit with the other generic posters. Take risks and break the rules, and that way you will capture the attention of many.
Know your prey
You can’t capture the attention of anybody if there is no audience in mind. It is vital that you know your target audience so you design your poster to capture their attention. To capture the attention of your target audience you have to use language and design concepts that your target audience can relate to.

The choice of colours are often overlooked, however colours can be very powerful within a poster. They have the power to affect feelings and emotions. Again the colours used should be based on your target audience. Using different colours can convey an array of different emotions, this will allow customers to like and feel a certain way which is aimed to draw them into responding positively to the promotion. It is vital to look at the psychology of colours when choosing your colours. This will help you make the right decision on the correct colour palate for your Poster.
