More on Color Management….

Improved Color for the World Wide Web: A Case Study in Color Management for
Distributed Digital Media

The project showed that it is possible to introduce color management into a distributed document production and viewing environment. Color management on the World Wide Web is feasible and can be added in a manner compatible with current tools. The GIF extension required a small amount of work. It can implemented to add only a very small amount of data per image. Because the processing is relatively lightweight, no noticeable performance impact was detected. Finally, and most importantly, colors look better.

This Case Study really helped me.

What is The Conversation Prism?

Conversation Prism 4.0 for 2013

Developed in 2008 by Brian Solis, The Conversation Prism is a visual map of the social media landscape. It’s an ongoing study in digital ethnography that tracks dominant and promising social networks and organizes them by how they’re used in everyday life.

Kingwood College Project

The Kingwood college has a program that teaches graphic art. We allow them to come see the press in operation. Creating an invitation to each student was done by variable data. I have enclosed, the static portion, the variable data the, and printer characteristics and final output.

Designed by Kingwood College students, who were invited to come and observe while we printed their projects. The week before we printed black and cyan then came magenta and yellow on second run. . The project is all 4 up and were cut to size. Cut to size for to finishing Their project was a success.
Setup the printing unit by turning the dampening system on, lowering the squeeze roller and setting dampening volume to about 2 on the press. I turned each printing unit.
Prepared ink system by opening all the printing keys and set them to 11. My press crew and I examined trial sheet impressions until we had proper density and positioning.
