The Paling palettes

Risk Communication Institute offers online software to customise pictograms easily for the communication of benefit and risk. Users may choose between 1000-person (as shown above) and 10000-person (for rare events) Paling Palettes. Furthermore, users may also select suitable icons (male, female, family), the layout of coloured icons (separate or additive), and the colour of icons for up to three different representations. These palettes provide an instant way to create high quality pictograms. The pictogram above illustrates the "additive" layout of the number of people who experienced a relapse in the natalizumab and the placebo groups in the PROTECT Natalizumab Case Study.
