Designer Math

I was flipping through my Pantone book the other day when I had this epiphany: designers don’t “do” regular math, but they do have to do a different kind of math. Working with color is very challenging and getting consistent color whether it is in print or on the web is one of the most demanding parts of my job as a designer. Sometimes I get it right, sometimes I don’t. Thankfully, there are tools that make it easier, but let’s face it: there will always be that rogue printer or monitor out there that, no matter how much you try, it won’t show you the right color.

So I thought it would be fun to do some posters showing the visual math that designers perform every day…enjoy!
