    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.

            Your Favorite Graphic Design Book

            I know this can span a wide variety of topics, but I'm curious what your favorite design book is.
            My focus is branding and logo design, but trying to build a library of design books.

            The point at which no one is able to make a living in a once thriving profession. Your ''secondary skill'' definition would be that cliff.

            There is no ''general rule''

            The idea is not to have rivers running through it. Sometimes you have to suggest to the client that they might have to change a word here and there (as long as...

            I predict that the worse case scenario is graphic design reduced to secondary skill status.

            What is ''the cliff?''
