    I quite like it, maybe play around with some more typefaces and see how you go. Maybe see how a classical typeface like optima, bodoni or perpetua look? Maybe thats the kind of look your after....

    I have some education in the designing field but I wouldnt consider myself a professional.
    I enjoy myself some well done design-visuals but I dont earn money with it.
    So I hope its still okay...

    While working on a logo for a client, he sent me logo designs from another designer
    Please forgive me if this is a general situation which has been posted before but I’m at a loss as to how to handle this.

    I have a client that requested that I design a logo for him....

    That was pretty neat ... I thought they were paintings as well.

  • Converting pantone colors to rgb reference

    Is there anywhere online that supplies a list for converting pantone colors to a approximate rgb for screen use?

    More specifically what I need is pantone 417 and 447 to closest rgb value for web use.

    Or search Pantone to hex converter.

    Unless you really NEED rgb numbers...


    • #3
      Photoshop shows 417 to be 110, 111, 100 and 447 to be 54, 56, 52.
      ...I've wrestled with reality for thirty-five years, and I'm happy, Doctor; I finally won out over it!

        I'm pretty sure all solid pantone colors fit within the RGB spectrum, so photoshop should give you quite accurate conversion when switching from the pantone color library to rgb color picker...

          Illustrator CS says 417 is 117/117/98 and 477 is 72/78/65

          Now what are you going to do?

          Pantone colors on screen are all relative anyway.

            I'd toss a coin.

            Whichever one I pick, it will still probably look different on the monitor of the person sitting next to me

              I would probably go with Photoshop over Illy, for RGB conversion.

              But as was stated, there can't be any consistency anyways!
