Abstract: The words in a document are often supported, illustrated, and enriched by visuals. When color is used, some of it is used to define the document’s identity and is therefore strictly controlled in the design process. The result of this design process is a “color specification sheet,” which must be created for every background color. While in traditional publishing there are only a few backgrounds, in variable data publishing a larger number of backgrounds can be used. We present an algorithm that nudges the colors in a visual to be distinct from a background while preserving the visual’s general color character. Publication Info: Copyright 2006 SPIE and IS&T.
