Training Your Visual Color Apparel Team Webinar
August 26, 2020; 11:00AM (EDT)
Presented by Jean Hoskin, former Director of Color Services at Macy’s
Visual approval of color for production requires the evaluation of lab dyeings, print strike offs, or woven pattern handlooms. Preparing color technicians to perform these evaluations in a light booth includes understanding of the visual environment, sample positioning, and perception. This presentation will provide visual examples of color relativity important to color evaluation and the procedures color technicians can use to make confident color decisions. Protocols for evaluation with explanations for training a color team, design colleagues, and customers will be discussed. The what and why of color perception such as simultaneous contrast, gradation, after image, optical mixture, Bezold effect, and the Weber-Fechner Law will be demonstrated.
