Frank Romano on Graph Expo 2012
Published on September 26, 2012
Frank Romano talks about the importance of live events to the industry and encourages everyone to join him at this year's Graph Expo show in Chicago.
Frank Romano: Hi this is Frank Romano for WhatTheyThink.com. By now you’ve all received the promotion piece for Graph Expo. Isn’t it refreshing? A printing event that actually uses direct mail and prints to promote itself? You can register for the event either analog or you can do it online. You can probably do it telepathically. In any case, why am I promoting Graph Expo? Because I believe that events, tradeshows, seminars, conferences are important. It’s the way you keep up with that is going on in the printing industry. Everything is changing almost daily. And you really need the opportunity to walk the aisles, see what’s new, run into some old friends, maybe attend a session of some sort, either one of the free sessions on the floor, or one of the paid seminars. There are over 50 seminars that you can attend. It’s an important event, and you really should be there. I will. See you then.

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.
