A combination of layout information and content information). In the above example, since the design of the promotional material generated in step S502 (referred to as a base design) has a “clear fresh” taste, generation of “mild natural”, “pop / casual”, etc., which are different from this. In accordance with the rules, designs such as “mild natural” and “pop casual” are generated. The generated design is recorded in a promotional material in association with each taste in the form of layout information and content information. Each taste is associated with a corresponding font or color scheme, and variations are generated by applying these to the base design. These associations are defined based on the relationship between the impression received by the recipient and the impression expression (taste) of the document. As a technique related to the impression received by the receiver and the impression expression (taste) of the document, there is a technique described in Japanese Unexamined Patent Application Publication No. 2007-279851.

Background color: Other than blue Gender: Female Age: Teens, 20s Delivery time: 9: 00-18: 00
Keywords: cafe, fashionable, cute, cheerful, happy, ...
(2) “Mild Natural”
Background color: Not specified Gender: Not specified Age: 20s ~
Delivery time: 9: 00-15: 00
Keywords: cafe, relaxation, healing, nature, natural, ...
(3) "Pop casual"
Background color: Other than red Gender: Female Age: 20s ~
Delivery time: 9: 00-19: 00
Keywords: cafe, fun, happy, casual, ...
The design determination condition defines a condition for determining a design for distribution to a target person. For example, when displaying or displaying a promotional material, if the background color and the design color are similar, the effective / ineffective background color is set in consideration of the fact that the promotional material becomes difficult to see. Or define effective / ineffective age and gender for each variation. Specifically, the background color of the area for displaying the promotional material is other than red, the subject's gender is female, the age is in his twenties, and the distribution time is 9: 00-19: 00. And if the target person has written a word such as “cafe” or “fun” in a document written in a predetermined period (predetermined period from now), “pop casual” applies Is done. You may make it apply the taste by satisfy | filling some instead of all of these conditions.
Then, the generated design variation (combination of layout information and content information) is associated with design determination conditions.

In step S510, the design display module 120 displays the generated design variation result to the user. In the case of saving according to the operation of the user, the process proceeds to step S512, and the created promotional item is saved.
