Come join us as we discuss a hot topic that is on everyone’s minds that deal with color, publication workflows (including Adobe, Quark, Corel, Affinity) and the Pantone color library.
How does this change affect you, Designers, Creatives, the color production workflow, and your business?
Joining us is Dr. Dov Isaacs who served as a Principal Scientist at Adobe for over 31 years, primarily dealing with development and refinement of end-to-end publishing workflows – from content creation and layout through the rendering of such content with either drying ink, cooling toner, or glowing pixels. He continues to contribute to ISO and other industry association PDF and publishing standards. Also joining us is AmyBeth Menendez, a Creative Designer, Prepress Expert, and Student Mentor. She is also Adobe Certified Instructor, Community Expert / Idealliance G7® Expert / and Color Management Professional®.

- While women are making up an increasingly larger portion of the print industry, the long history of it being a male-dominated field has not been forgotten.
- Kelsey Fields, Idealliance’s Program Manager, will be speaking with women at different points in their career to learn what they’re doing to advance the industry and how their participation with Idealliance has supported them in doing so.
“It will be exciting to see the direct-to-garment industry continue to grow and evolve to best serve its customers who demand consistent, aligned color and branding, regardless of the printed product.”
MORE FROM IDEALLIANCE
Through the annual cycle of discovery, testing, and reporting the Idealliance SPECTRUM connection advanced the science of print, revolutionized workflows, developed specifications, fostered implementation of emerging print technologies.
Workflow Innovations—Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML)
The Association, under the leadership of IBM, formalized the Gencode Specification, which was eventually standardized by ISO as ISO 8879, SGML.
Workflow Innovations—Publishers Requirement for Industry Standard Metadata (PRISM)
The PRISM working group was created to develop a standard set of metadata to identify, organize, publish, aggregate and reuse digital magazine content assets in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
When SGML and HTML came together, they built a new language for the Web. This language, “eXtensible Markup Language”, or XML, merged the strengths of both communities.
DISC enabled production departments to streamline the intake of digital images and quickly determine which images were suited for final print publication.
Workflow Innovations—G7 Calibration
G7 continues to revolutionize global print workflows as the leading print alignment methodology to improve visual color consistency for print buyers, regardless of print technology.
Workflow Innovations—PQX (Print Quality Exchange)
This specification was developed to provide a standard message format for printers to report print quality to Brands.
This specification, a joint development between Idealliance and USPS enabled modern postal business workflows for printer/mailers large and small.
Workflow Innovations—SWOP (Specification for Web Offset Publications)
SWOP began as an organization whose purpose and goal was the improvement of the quality of magazine printing.
