countering the confusion of consumer packaged goods


Halftone printing uses dots, printed at different densities or at different sizes, to simulate different tones and shades without actually changing the colour of the ink.

This can be used in black-and-white printing to represent different tones, but can also be used in colour printing by printing dots of different colours.

On the left, the halftone dots as they would be printed; on the right, how the human eye would perceive the dots from a suitable viewing distance.
