Managing Colour++

The German research institute for media technologies hosts an international conference every second year on applied colour management, a “must” for colour consultants and prepress managers.

When modern colour management was new and the ICC technology was first introduced in the early nineties, there were many books written about it and many seminars and conferences organised. This was all good, and we could get a grasp of what this technology had to offer. Nowadays there are still seminars on offer, but often at a beginner’s level. So if you want to expand your colour management knowledge beyond the basics, you might have some difficulties in finding what you are looking for.

In this case, the Fogra Colour Management Symposium, held annually, is the place to go. You will learn about the latest in colour management and meet the key actors – both the experienced colour consultants, as well as the vendors who push the boundaries even further. Take Paul Sherfield, for example, a well-respected colour consultant from England, and Project Manager for the UK print certification – he saves up all year to be able to go to Munich and the Colour Management Symposium, saying: “This is one of the few events where I can learn new stuff, educate myself to the benefit of my clients.”
