A one-stop color resource for designers working across all fields of visual communication, Color Management shows how to implement color as a practical form of problem solving. It is a consolidated resource, arming designers with an understanding of how to communicate with and manage color in all its aspects and applications; subtractive and additive; pigment, CMYK and RGB; 2-D and 3-D; still and motion. Sensitivity of pigments to light and air and the stability of inks are also detailed, as is the human factor, through issues of color legibility and the physical and psychological effects of color. In its depth and breadth, it is a unique body of information.
Features visually stimulating and engaging examples of dynamic professional graphic design work, and includes step-by-step systems for achieving accurate color and successful process builds for prepress operations, color sinking and overprinting. In additon, it encompasses analysis of technical issues–printing order, color mixing, dot gain and color removal–provides designers with tremendous color flexibility and highlights cost-saving measures.
