These posters were created to be displayed in a situation similar to this one. The posters were created to help the residents fulfill their requirements in research and presentation. They are usually 4×4 or 4×6 feet and would be displayed on a large free-standing board at a yearly function. The fonts are sized to be easily readable from 3 to 4 feet and those dimensions. When pushed for space I would reduce the reference section to well below that reading distance.
