They can also serve as a useful tool for conveying messages, such as reminders or announcements, to employees. Additionally, they are a great resource for adding a bit of fun and creativity to any workspace – whether it’s adding intriguing artwork or fun facts about the company. 

If you want to make your office space more inviting and enjoyable, you should try decorating it with a couple of posters. You don’t even have to waste a lot of time on that – free poster templates make it easy and quick to create a perfect design.

However, you could also gather your team to make one together as a way to practice team play and get creative! Whatever you choose, this brief guide will help you get started.

Gather Your Supplies

Before you start, collect all the supplies that you will need for your poster. This may include paper, markers, glue, scissors, and other materials depending on what type of poster you want to make. Make sure that you have enough of each item so that you don’t run out midway through the project.

If you decide to go the digital way, try to find the best tools that will be helpful for your project. Use online resources to pick a template and customize it, look for photo stocks to find appropriate images, and try out free icon resources to level up your design. 

Brainstorm Your Ideas

Once your supplies are gathered, it’s time to start brainstorming ideas. Consider what type of message or image you want your poster to portray and decide whether it would be better with text alone or if you want to incorporate visuals as well. Here are some cool ideas:

  • Highlighting key moments in your company’s history. By displaying photos, dates, and details about pivotal events or milestones achieved by your organization, you can create a sense of pride and accomplishment amongst employees. Additionally, highlighting stories from customers or clients who have benefited from your services or product, is a great way to show appreciation and honor the relationships you have built with them.
  • Introducing members of your team. Posters featuring headshots and fun facts about each team member can be a great way to help everyone get to know one another better. Feeling connected to your co-workers can often lead to increased productivity as well as improved workplace morale.
  • Promoting healthy habits and safety rules. Feature information on exercising regularly, taking breaks throughout the day, maintaining proper posture when sitting at your desk, etc. This will not only inform employees but also remind them that their health matters and should be taken seriously. Likewise, safety guidelines such as information on fire drills or evacuation plans can be helpful should an emergency occur in the workplace.

Choose Your Format

Depending on the size of the space you plan to hang the poster in, decide which format would work best. For example; if it’s a large area such as a common room or break room, then an oversized poster could be used for maximum impact. If it is a smaller area, then a series of smaller posters placed around the perimeter might be more effective.

Design and Assemble

Once you have chosen a format for your poster, begin designing it in whatever program or medium works best for you. Here are a few tips for designing office posters:

  • Keep the design clean and simple – use minimal text and make sure it’s easy to read, utilize bright colors and bold font to draw attention, and stay focused on one main idea or message. However, remember that the poster should still look professional.
  • Incorporate visuals – add images or graphics that are relevant to the message you’re conveying and make it easier for people to understand. If appropriate, include a photo of the relevant team member(s).
  • Consider placement – think about where you’ll hang your poster ahead of time, so it can be seen by as many people as possible. The ideal location should be in an area that is visible but in which it would not be intrusive.
  • Be consistent – create a universal look for all of your posters, so there is a sense of unity in your workplace decor. This could include using consistent colors, fonts, or backgrounds throughout all designs. If your company has its brand colors, use them along with the logo or other official design elements.

When you finish the design, print off (or assemble) your poster and fix it securely into its intended space.

Making posters can be both fun and rewarding! We hope that our simple tips will help you create an eye-catching display around your workplace.
