West Chester, Ohio-based Color-Logic, a developer of color communication and software tools for a variety of special effect printing applications, has donated more than 150 copies of its Touch7 Photo ECG software to Toronto-based Ryerson University, for use in the School of Graphic Communications Management color management curriculum.
“The Ryerson graphic communications management program provides students with hands-on workshops and real-world workflow and color management experience,” says Mark Geeves, Color-Logic’s director of sales and marketing. “Offset and flexographic press manufacturers, as well as those producing digital presses, now offer extended color management inksets, and printers are beginning to offer them to clients. Experience with the Touch7 Photo ECG software will enable Ryerson graduates to step immediately into technology positions in the packaging and commercial printing industry.”
Ryerson Graphic Communications Management assistant professor, Christopher Smyth, says the school is grateful for the donation.
“Color-Logic’s generous support provides Ryerson students with an excellent opportunity to develop hands-on knowledge and creativity with extended color gamut projects,” Smyth says. “Touch7 has a clear, user-friendly interface which, together with the ability to adjust and customize the results, makes it an excellent approach to projects using fixed inksets."
Through a mixture of technical and business courses, the Ryerson University School of Graphic Communications Management in Toronto offers the only four-year degree program in Canada that is focused on the printing and graphic communications industries.
