The Alexandria, Virginia-based International Digital Enterprise Alliance, better known as Idealliance, announces the certification of 24 new G7 Experts and G7 Professionals following a recent training at RPI‘s corporate headquarters in Seattle.
Led by Don Hutcheson, G7 Lead Trainer, color expert, active participant in multiple international color standards groups, and inventor of G7, the three-day training event featured live demonstrations and hands-on experience with implementation of the G7 methodology in a live print production environment for color management, process control and standardization, optimization of printing and proofing, and the utilization of G7 to align all print technologies for visual consistency, process and quality control, and color workflow management.
This G7 training session attracted participants from across the print supply chain, including global brands, OEMs, suppliers and vendors, print production personnel, consultants, and creatives. Upon completion of training, participants demonstrate their extensive proficiency by completing an in-depth online exam.
These G7 Experts and G7 Professionals are now certified by Idealliance as leaders in print production and global standards to align all proof and print applications regardless of process, ink or substrate. G7 Experts and G7 Professionals are also committed to reducing costs, speeding product to market, and improving and maintaining their client’s brand image and print production requirements, according to the nonprofit Idealliance.
