Multimedia presentation generation has to be able to balance the functional aspects of a presentation that address the information needs of the user and its aesthetic form. We demonstrate our approach using automatic colour design for which we integrate relevant aspects of colour theory. We do not provide a definition of the relative importance of form versus function, but seek to explore the roles of subjective elements in the generation process.
