Hatteras's J. Eagleson Seeks Software Solutions at GraphExpo
Published on September 15, 2011
The Director of Cross Media Marketing for Hatteras, J. Eagleson, shares a little about what he's looking for at this year's GraphExpo.
How you doin? Jay Eagleson here from Hatteras out of the Tri-State area in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. I’m here at Graph Expo; the show’s been great so far even though, you know, we got Drupa down the line in the spring, but you know a lot of the big companies’ here, a lot of smaller companies’ here as well. We were, you know, we spent some time looking at Kodak; we’re heavy users of Kodak and their Printergy and their pre-press workflow. Spent a lot of time at the XMPie booth as well and you know, a big topic we’ve seen this year is, you know, packaging, large format, large format finishing equipment. That seems to be something, you know, even us at Hatteras are looking to this year as well.
We’re here looking for some wide format finishing equipment. For the past year-and-a-half, we’ve invested in some large format equipment; 80 inch machines, 60 inch machines, customers again are starting to get more familiar with what to ask for, what they’re looking for and we’re looking for more efficiencies and ways to finish that equipment.
Also, a lot of the workflow companies are here as far as the MIS systems, pre-press automation, they’re all here kind of looking to automate, embrace the technology and help the printers become more efficient.
So you know, I’ve been really impressed with the show so far, looking forward to Drupa in 2012, and hopefully see you next year.

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.
