fantastic! I fully understood inkjet limitations today

"Inkjet will never fly" -- this is hands down the best Not Frank video I've seen to date. Not that I want to date Not Frank, but you guys at WTT are ever on the cutting (floor) edge.

Bravo! Bring back Not Not Frank! (I guess this means Frank??)

:)

Perhaps inkjet COULD fly if the ink was under very high pressure and the jetting systems were able to produce droplets in the shape of airfoils(?) I'll bet we can get the best engineering minds on this right away... What do you say (Not) Frank?

Joe, I never knew you had a standup comedy background too.

Thanks for the laugh.

I want to see Not Dr Joe

(Not) Frank is way off the mark in his description of "ink jet". "Ink jet" does not refer to shipping ink via jet planes. That's just silly. "Ink jet" refers to mega-droplets (pardon the oxymoron) of ink the size of shipping containers that are enveloped in a gossamar fabric and propelled by solar powered tiny "jets" arrayed strategically on their surfaces. When in shipment, each drop(let?) is drone-like-controlled making it possible for the supplier to "target" each and every customer "on-demand". This ultra efficient delivery system is just another example of how the Mensa minds of the printing industry continue to win the cross-media. Go Print!

Designers: Are You Designing with "Considerate Color"?

Published: February 16, 2018

Cal Poly Professor Brian Lawler explains what designers should be thinking about to serve the needs of those who don't see color the same way most of us do. He recommends a process for using "considerate color" that allows the people with color vision defects to still see contrast and tonal difference in colors selected for graphic projects such as roadmaps and charts where color itself is a factor in understanding the content. He mentions specific tools designers can use to accomplish this.

Art, Photography and Print: A Winning Combination for Christopher Campbell

Published: February 13, 2018

Christopher Campbell, a lifelong photographer and artist, explains how he blends these two passions to not only create great art, but to capture his unique artwork with a camera, generating a printed image that is almost indistinguishable from the original. He sees this as a remarkable moment in history: digital printers have such a large color gamut and can do so much, cameras now capture such high resolution, and color science has come to a point where ordinary people can profile a camera and a printer, and make these things.
