Color-Logic CoFounder and CTO, Richard Ainge, who also developed the Touch7 Neon process, recently briefed PRO Members of PaperSpecs on the power of the new fluorescent inks available on the latest digital presses.
Said Ainge regarding the briefing: "Touch7 was developed five years ago for conventional and digital presses, but as more digital presses with fluorescent inks become available, graphic designers often find themselves unclear about the potential and the pitfalls of fluorescents. We provided the PaperSpecs PRO Members with an overview of color gamut expansion, the various print engines available, and the design software now on the market. OEM color guides available from press manufacturers were also described."
PaperSpecs Founder and CEO Sabine Lenz, commenting on the briefing, said: "PaperSpecs PRO members were entranced by the presentation, and suggested that material from the Color-Logic fluorescents briefing should be part of every design school curriculum." Said one audience participant: "I gained a significantly deeper understanding of the technical side of fluorescent design and how to enhance color intensity."
