Could anybody suggest standards or practices, or just tips and tricks,

This is a very large information flow diagram going through several
iterations. It is done on Visio and sections or the entire image are
output on huge sheets of paper with an HP designjet plotter. Right now

I am concerned about having to fax parts of this diagram and/or showing
it to persons who are color blind an or just a bit color impaired
(which is my case) so I am looking at ways to give some shape to the
pastel blobs surrounding the words. Each shape would correspond to a
