Paper Abstract

Despite the proven ability of color to enhance scientific and technical communication, many designers and their teachers strongly avoid chromatic color. They can overcome their reluctance and use color effectively if they understand how color works, respect the limitations of color, and apply it in ways compatible with communications objectives and human perception.
