Camouflage is the art of making things more difficult to see. Surprisingly, the principles of camouflage can be found in many HMI practices being touted today as “improvements” over past practices. Such poor designs are easily found on the web, in magazine articles, in vendor promotional materials, and in delivered work products of graphics designers. In this talk, examples of such practices will be shown, and contrasted to clean, clear, crisp, and legible visualizations that would provide operators with a much clearer understanding of process conditions.
