client feedback


Gordon Baird 
Managing Director 
Christie's International Media Division 
Global Head of Christie's Fine Art Photography 

"Following the introduction of end-to-end process colour management procedures and controls, our Fine Art Auction Catalogues have never looked better.   This has been achieved by developing subject specific digital image capture profiles, establishing CTP tone reproduction curves from internal press measurement data, profiling our proofing devices to the press condition and creating a bespoke RGB to CMYK conversion profile.   The latter provides for accurate retention of the original subject matter's integrity in terms of colour, detail and dynamic range."

"I can't shower sufficient praise on Neil Barstow for his professional guidance, diligent involvement and support given to the production team, in achieving this end.   I would unreservedly recommend his services to anyone wishing, seriously, to implement robust colour management practice within their organisation."
