In the article is presented the design for security graphics on packaging with invisible information. The color choice is underlined by the INFRAREDESIGN® theory. Individual solutions for joining two independent images are realized with digital printing and interpreted with computer animation. Separation of the dye is performed for the default response of the hidden drawing that is released by the infrared camera. Product recognition is with IRD process as a "visual information identity". Hidden graphics are designed with a protective line solution. Experiments have been carried out in the pharmaceutical field, on the packaging of drugs. Proving the authenticity of the content is carried out by recording the packaging and comparing it with the specimen that was recorded as photographs of the twenty light blockades in the visual and infrared spectrum.
