Original post below and thank you for your advice!

What advice do you have for making a poster for a giant project? I mean visual balance, fonts, general principles of making a poster presentation for graduate-level work. I'm working in PowerPoint because I work too slowly in Illustrator.

Left wing is Analysis, center is Design, and right wing is Evaluation.That's as specific as I'm comfortable getting.It's largely text with a few screen shots and a couple of models.

I'm actually mostly done with the two wings, the right of which is basically a giant table (massive content dump).

General advice for someone who is an expert wordsmith but not visually creative is most welcome!
