I recently had to produce a poster outlining my PhD research project in terms that could be understood by a non-expert. I went for a straightforward approach of a brief description and some simple illustrations drawn from book covers, film posters and DVD sleeves. As it was produced for viewing online, I opted for a landscape design.
The poster was on display for two weeks on the website of Liverpool University during the "Poster Day Online" event. The event is now over, so I can make it viewable here.
