First Idealliance G7® Colour courses start online in February

26 January 2021

Idealliance, the global standards developer and certifying body for ISO and G7 colour specification, has named David Crowther of Sydney’s Colour Graphic Services as one of 25 global certified G7 colour expert instructors to lead new training sessions on G7 based print and packaging applications.


“G7 is the leading colour initiative in print consistency and near neutral appearance, and the G7 methodology specifies how to align any 4-colour CMYK print output to align all print technologies, regardless of where or how a product is printed,” says Idealliance.


The interactive online training takes place over five consecutive days in February 2021. Training consists of a variety of components, including shared slides, video, whiteboard illustrations of critical concepts, press runs and print calibration simulations, and hands-on analysis.


G7 Expert Trainer David Crowther - named last year as head of Idealliance Australasia - will lead the training open to those based in Australia and New Zealand. It will focus on G7 based print and packaging applications, and G7 integration, maintenance, and process control across all print and proofing applications through cutting edge, online learning. 


Crowther, of Colour Graphic Services, has qualifications that include:
G7 Expert trainer, BrandQ Manager certified, G7 Process Control Expert certified, Colour Management Professional Master certified, G7 Expert certified, Member – (EX-004) Australian ISO Technical Committee for Graphic Technology TC 130, Mellow Colour Certified Partner, Techkon Certified Service Partner, Colour and Print Consultant
