A G7 Expert is an expert in the field of color management, process and quality control for proofing and printing equipment.

INSTRUCTOR & INVENTOR
Don Hutcheson
HutchColor

www.hutchcolor.com

With more than 40 years of experience in photography, design, prepress, printing and color science, Don Hutcheson has pioneered many techniques we now take for granted, like RGB workflows, soft proofing, extended-gamut printing and digital proofing.

In 1995 he started the world’s first color management consultancy, HutchColor, LLC, to bring the concept of ICC color management to professional graphic users. Today he continues to train the world’s top printers, publishers, agencies, photographers and designers through private consulting and public conferences.

In 2006 as chair of the IDEAlliance GRACoL committee Don used his own Proof-to-Press calibration method (now known as “G7®”)to produce the current GRACoL and SWOP data sets. Since then G7 has made standardized printing and proofing easier and more accessible to thousands of printers and print buyers world-wide.


Events may be canceled by IDEAlliance at anytime, in this case a full refund or transfer to another event is offered.
