To do this, I could have used
beamer-poster class but I didn’t and I paid the price. I ended up spending a lot of time customizing the spaces to fit my data into poster. Sometimes I felt like going back to
scribus which I believe to be one the best tool to create posters.
In the end, I managed to create a 48″x36″ poster using tikz and co. This is how it looks like.
