A wonderful course, essential for anyone working with print projects and those wanting to make sure the colors the see on their screen match with the final printed proofs and pieces. I highly recommend!

If you are preparing artwork for a commercial print job, this class will help you get it right first time. Getting it wrong can be expensive. Understanding that colours vary from one device or printer to another, and from one paper stock to another, is the first step in taking control of your finished artwork. Also, now I know how to use global colours in Affinity Designer! Thank you Heather for this informative class.
