Create professional posters with design software for web, desktop, and mobile.

Posters, banners, and billboards are important tools for generating publicity and capturing attention. Unlike other promotional pieces, they must be visible at a distance and often have only a moment to make an impact — so clear graphics, minimal text, and a punchy design are vital. Efficient design tools and effective poster templates make successful layout simple. Create eye-catching designs easily with state-of-the-art software.

Sophisticated features to amplify the work of stunning poster designers.

Select your size

Pick from presets or define your own canvas. Web banner or highway billboard, a strong layout commands attention.


Use frames for your main poster elements. A typical poster relies on one or two images combined with short text chunks in varying sizes.

Add graphics and copy

Fill your frames with copy and images. A good poster relies on clean lines and solid layout to convey only one or two key messages.


Save your finished project in JPEG, PNG, or TIFF format for digital use or as color separations, EPS, or PDF for a print provider.

Easy font search

Search for fonts using categories like handwritten or serif. Find the exact one you want to deliver your message from thousands of available options.

QR code creator

Build clean, sharp QR codes in InDesign. Vector graphics maintain code quality even when scaling your project.

Alternate glyphs

Many fonts offer alternative typefaces for letters and symbols. Search for particular glyphs or select a letter to trigger an alternative glyph menu to choose from.
