For portrait posters text should be laid out in a minimum of two columns, for posters larger than A2 (A1 or A0), and three columns may be more suitable. When creating an A2 landscape poster you should use a minimum of three columns and four if using A1 or A0. If using a coloured or patterned background, you should consider a pale colour.
Always pick a font that is simple and easy to read, Arial, Helvetica and Times are some suitable examples. Font size is important when creating large format posters, the minimum point size you should use depends on the size of your poster.

A1: Title 50pt | sub-heading 26pt | body text 20pt
A0: Title 60pt | sub-heading 35pt | body text 25pt
