Laurie PressmanVice President, Pantone Color InstituteCOLOR THINKING FOR BETTER DESIGNIn today’s highly visual society, where we are option saturated, attention
scarce and design-obsessed, color has moved to the forefront of the
conversation. Leveraging the symbiotic relationship between color thinking
and design will enhance brand positioning and help you better engage and
create strong emotional connections with your target audience.
Adrián FernándezGeneral Manager, Pantone and Vice President Packaging, X-RiteTHE COUNTERINTUITIVE MAGIC OF SPECIFICITYFor designers, ensuring that a creative vision comes to life as originally
imagined can be a challenge. Learn how getting specific early on helps
you generate momentum, accelerate time to market, maximizes your
creativity, and gives you confidence that your design vision will be faithfully
produced…the first time and every time.
