Keep color consistency in your yearbook sections, even when you have several designers, and even if not all of the colors are chosen but work needs to start as deadlines loom. Use the Swatches palette (Window > Swatches) to assign hue-independent page elements. By naming swatches based upon what they do for the design instead of color name, they are more easily managed.
