Infographics are a good idea for inspiration. The differences/considerations are perhaps that the poster will sometimes have one of the authors standing there to talk you through it (so in that case it could be seen as a prop), it'll be big (A0), and it'll be fighting for attention in a busy room. I'm really impressed by the examples you managed to find. I agree that I've never seen a well-designed academic poster, and I've seen a lot!

Thanks for your excellent reply. To answer a few questions - in my field (computer vision) you submit a paper to a conference, and it will either get accepted with an oral presentation, accepted with a poster, or rejected. So posters normally accompany a finished piece of work and are done after the paper. (Occasionally there will be some smaller event or grad-student get-together where you might have a poster for work-in-progress though.)
