Most legal documents like this are just black and white, with some bold and italic thrown in there, as well as indentation and changes in font size. But you don't really see color in there. The same with legal forms like this driver's license form. It's just black and white.
I'm wondering what would be a good use of color (and why you would use it) in some legal document like the ones above. Wondering what would justify adding color.
- It just "seems nice". Kind of vague, you can make plain b+w documents look nice too.
- It enhances something. This is kind of vague though, not sure what this would mean.
- Branding. But I don't see how you'd decide what elements would need branding, other than say a single logo in the whole document (so there would only be one tiny piece of color in the document).
- Figures. But you could just do figures in b+w too.
