Gemini Build Status

Gemini is a modern LaTeX beamerposter theme.

If you're looking for a beamer presentation theme, take a look at Auriga.


  • A TeX installation that includes LuaTeX
    • You also need latexmk if you want to use the provided Makefile
  • LaTeX package dependencies including beamerposter (these usually come with your TeX installation, but if not, you can get them from CTAN)
  • Raleway and Lato, which are both available under Open Font License


  1. Copy the files in this repository (or clone the repository)

  2. In poster.tex, set up your paper size, column layout, and scale the content as necessary

  3. Make a copy of beamercolorthemegemini.sty, update the \usecolortheme line in poster.tex, and theme the poster to your liking (optional, but highly recommended)

  4. Run make to build your poster


See the FAQ in the Wiki for answers to frequently asked questions such as how to add an institution logo to the poster.


Gemini currently includes three color themes:

  • gemini (default)
  • mit
  • labsix

The alternative themes are intended to be inspiration for you to make your own color theme. You're highly recommended to make your own color theme (it's really easy!) or use the default Gemini theme.

Design goals

  • Minimal: clean and easy to read, so that the emphasis is on the content
  • Batteries included: works and looks good out of the box
  • Easy theming: easy to create and use a new color theme


Contributions to Gemini such as bug reports, new themes, and new poster components are greatly appreciated! Given the subjective nature of design, you're encouraged to open an issue or pull request early to get feedback before investing a lot of time in implementing a new feature.
