Spectrum 2001 Day One
Don Carli, principal of Nima Hunter, discussed the results of an industry survey his company conducted concerning color management. The most significant result? When asked to define color management in the survey, not two industry experts agreed upon the definition. Carli used the opportunity to make the point that it is difficult to better color management if the industry cannot even agree upon what it is. The day ended on a rousing note with "Magazines: In the Trenches with the Partial Ad from Hell!" Greg Captain, Manager The New Yorker Imaging Center, Conde Nast Publications; Michael Weinglass, VP/Manufacturing and Production, Easyriders; and John Regina, VP of Sales, NEC, led by Betty Maul, shared notable experiences of dealing with the invariable ads that are not quite up to spec. The mantra of the often comical session was patience and education.
