Fespa and Fujifilm collaborate for colour management bootcamp

Fespa Australia and Fujifilm have partnered to facilitate an online colour management bootcamp from 7 to 9 December. John Quixley from Fujifilm is expected to host the event.

Quixley is a certified instructor and industry expert in colour management. He has a long history with colour management, having first been exposed to this as the market was moving from analogue towards digital proofing.

At the virtual event, participants can look forward to gaining a better understanding of techniques for device calibration, spot colour management and verification, how to use colour measurement instrumentation and profiling software, as well as learning why colour management is not a theory question, but a technology problem that can be solved.

Fespa Australia president Nigel Davies said attending this course will help businesses gain control of their colour quality with techniques that cut risk and help them get it right first time.

“Our first course with Celmac was a sell out and we received valuable feedback from the participants which will make our next course with Fujifilm even better. Several of the participants have now qualified as a PRINTING United Alliance Digital Colour Professional,” he said.

“We’re constantly learning and these online courses have been specifically designed to be as interactive as possible. The class size is limited and the students can ask questions and engage with the instructor allowing for immediate feedback.

Quixley said Fujifilm continuously innovates – creating new technologies, products and services that inspire and excite people everywhere – and having this colour management bootcamp with Fespa Australia extends its goals to others.

“The goal of these sessions is to help develop professionals who understand colour theory and principles and can manage consistent, predictable and repeatable colour on any system they manage,” Quixley said.

“This comprehensive course is designed to further develop the colour management skills of print professionals, graphic designers and prepress team members.”

Tickets are priced at $400 for Fespa members and $550 for non-members. Ticket sales end on 6 December and are available here.
