Basic Flip Chart Layout and Design
A simple way to approach your flip chart design is to think of a phrase summarizing your topic that will grab the audience’s attention. Next, condense the details of that concept down to the fewest words necessary to convey the thought. Finally, decide on a graphic image that will complement the words and enhance the message.

For example, in a session on employment law that I delivered to employees years ago, I was trying to convey the fact that a 1997 study by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) on Employment Litigation found the following:
- 4,900 HR professionals were surveyed.
- Six of ten surveyed reported lawsuits in their organization within the past five years.
- Fifty-seven percent said that their organization has been sued at least one lawsuit during that period.
- Of the lawsuits, eleven percent involved sexual discrimination or equal pay disputes.
To flip chart this, I selected a title line and then decided how I was going to condense and succinctly lay the information out visually to aid understanding, The chart below was the result.
