    out-of-gamut

    Hows best toovercome this prob if printing in CYMK? I know photoshop gives the equivalent color but for outdoor logos (posters) its no good as the color degrades too much.

    I've got logos with RGB cyan (0,255,255), CYMK 52!,0!,13!,0! and orange of RGB 255,101,0 / CYMK 0!,75!,100!,0!.

    Would conversion be an option and check with the printer there compatible?

    Thanks

        Hello PrintDriver, not yet decided but either litho or digital.

          Out-of-gamut means different things in litho than in digital.
          There may be a match in digital.
          The printer may have to apply corrected colors to your file though for an extra charge. Or you find a printer that has an excellent color management system up and running (few and far between still).
          Do you have PMS Solid Coated or Process swatch color numbers for those CMYK equivalents (Usually logos have specified PMS numbers)?
          If you have swatch colors, ask your printer if he can match them. In CMYK digital (inkjet) the cyan shouldn't be a prob. The orange depends on how close to flourescent that color is. Lambda/lightjet type digital could be a problem - or not. Can't tell without a swatch number.
          Best thing is to ask the printer.

            I think it is good and has potential. My first impresion was that I didnt immediatly see what the word was in green because the type is too moved around and not too readable. I also agree there is too...

            Interesting. If all your work is at this level, I'd say it is good enough to get into design school. Did they give you reasons why you didn't make it?

            In terms of real world critique, if...

            Hi Wayne, when you say background design, are you meaning the white text on red pattern in the background?

            Not a bad start, and definitely a fair place where you can improve and grow.

            The illustrations are a good start, I'm sure if you worked on them some more, you could give them a bit more refining....
