The set includes Formula Guide (Coated & Uncoated), Color Bridge Guide (Coated & Uncoated) and CMYK (Coated & Uncoated) – for versatility at all stages of the workflow. Useful for both designers and design students, from finding colour inspiration and communicating colour, to verifying colour accuracy and translating spot colours to CMYK, HTML, or RGB. The compact size travels from school to studio, to stakeholder meetings and press checks.
For your ease of viewing, application and portability, the guides are printed on the most commonly used paper stock weights in six portable handheld fan decks in a convenient carrying case for travel and storage. Stay organised as each colour is arranged in a chromatic format displayed with its coordinating number and ink formulation or values, with new colour pages marked at top corners and integrated throughout the Formula Guides.
