A Portfolio of Model Posters


Click on the titles below to see several model posters from Creative Inquiry Day 2015. Our team has specially annotated these posters to point out what made them successful!

“When Good Intentions Go Wrong: When Intentionally Trying to Remember Answers Backfires”
This poster, which won the Andreassi Prize in Psychology, was created by Danielle Altman and Yuliya Ochankovskaya. Poster sessions are an important aspect of Psychology as a discipline and, therefore, Psychology students have a strong presence in Baruch’s Creative Inquiry Day.

“Funding for Universal Pre-K in NYC: Affordability, Viability and Impact”
This poster, an example from the Social Sciences within Baruch’s School of Public Affairs, was created by Desiree Joy Frias, who followed the American Psychological Association (APA) guidelines for poster presentations.

“TAIMAN Availability Directly Relates to Methoprene Sensitivity in Drosophila melanogaster
This poster, which was a winner in the Natural Sciences within Baruch’s Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, was created by Shivani Daryani. The headings reflect disciplinary expectations emphasizing methodology, results and discussion, conclusion, and references.

“Disordered Discourse: Exploring the Perceptions of Gender among Parents of Children Living with CAH”
This poster, which was a winner in the Social Sciences within Baruch’s Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, was created by Jonathan Ruiz. The title alerts readers to the subject and purpose of Ruiz’s research. The headings reflect disciplinary expectations emphasizing methods, analysis, conclusion, and references.

“A Bowl of Harmony”
This poster, an example from the Humanities within Baruch’s Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, was created by Lanfang Li as part of a Fine and Performing Arts course. Because the Humanities do not have discipline-specific guidelines for poster sessions, students have the opportunity to be highly imaginative with their layout choices. This example highlights the dynamic relationship between the poster and the presenter, who chose a minimalist design paired with verbal explanations of her research into food photography, recipe development, and design layout.
