No Limits Colour services was set up in April 2006

A brief history

In 1993 I started working with London's first digital print bureaux "No Limits Reprographics" producing prints for clients such as JM Enternational, Ove Arup, Ernst & Young, Nicholas Grimshaw, Imagination and Corbis. I experienced first hand the issues surrounding us everyday in trying to produce accurate and consistent colour. We used to spend hours matching colours and working with the clients to achieve the results we both expected. Working with printers such as Xerox Electrostatics, Scitex Iris's and various inkjets, right up to when we took delivery of a Durst Lambda in 1997, we worked hard to make sure that what we produced from all these devices was as closely matched to the original as possible. I only wish we had colour management back then.

In 2001 I went to work for Fuji Hunt, the photo chemical and Digital Solutions arm of Fuji Film. My responsibilties were for sales, installation and technical support of large format printers, RIP's and Colour Management hardware and software to the professional photographic market in London & the South East.

Whilst working with Fuji Hunt I was fortunate enough to have direct dealings with the developers and technical staff from companies like Adobe, Epson, Gretag Macbeth, Applied Image Technology and Onyx.

I have presented on Colour Management at various shows and companies over the last five years including: Adobe Systems, Fuji Hunt, Focus On Imaging, Photokina, Click Group, Fresh, Maple Framing, D&J Simons, Snappy Snaps, Genesis Digital, Calumet and the government backed "Skills for Business" initiatives held in conjunction with Sheffield University.

Now, after nearly 13 years in digital imaging my intentions are to bring colour management out of the dark and through a direct, honest approach help others to understand why and how they should be using colour management to aid their business.
