New FESPA Aust online colour management bootcamp

FESPA Australia has announced a second online colour management bootcamp which will be facilitated by Fujifilm’s John Quixley from November 2 to 4 this year.

The announcement of the bootcamp comes after a successful online program was held in October 2020.

The course covers colour theory and principles, goals of colour management, device calibration, time-tested procedures, newest print standards, spot colours and print verification.

FESPA Australia president Nigel Davies says, “We received great feedback from the first online course, and several of the participants have now qualified as a PRINTING United Alliance Digital Colour Professional.”

About John Quixley

Fujifilm’s John 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.

“Working at Fujifilm, I’ve learnt to constantly identify ways to innovate and add value and seek out opportunities to strengthen the industry as a whole. The goal of these sessions is to 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.”

Interactive program

Davies said the online program has been designed to be as interactive as possible with livestream Q&A sessions allowing for immediate feedback.

“The class size is limited allowing students to immediately engage with the instructor,” Davies said.

“Attending this course will help you gain control of your colour quality with techniques that cut risk and help you get it right first time.”

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 you can solve.
