Colour Library

Colour library are thrilled to release their new and exciting colour profiles. Colour Library is a database of colour profiles for artists, designers, and printers who are looking for a novel yet professional colour management solution. Specifically it helps convert images for printing devices using two, three, four, or five spot colours, and offers a large variety of combinations, from basic colours to metallics, neons, and pastels. Colour Library was created within the Workflow research project (R&D) about printing technologies at ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne. This project was led by David Keshavjee, Guy Meldem, Tatiana Rihs, Julien Tavelli (Maximage) and supported by the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland (HES-SO).Colour Library Colour Library Colour Library  The new colour profiles recently launched have been developed as an extension of the actual collection, and matching the PANTONE colours.
