Norwalk, Connecticut, USA — As part of its ongoing commitment to supporting the next generation of graphic communications professionals, Kodak Polychrome Graphics (KPG) sponsored 10 students from Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) at Graph Expo 2002. The graduate and undergraduate students at Graph Expo toured KPG’s exhibit and talked with KPG professionals about the Company’s portfolio of solutions for the graphic arts, including digital and conventional plates, proofing and color technologies and film.
