The swatches palette is a tool within InDesign that allows the designer to save colors to be used during their design process. I created a project that uses this palette in an alternative way by, using it as a tool to make compositions. The palette is already setup on a grid and therefore I am able to treat the palette as a pixel based drawing system. If the palette is resized, the drawing gets reshuffled and creates a new formal composition.
