New Color Tools Available for Graphic and Fashion Designers

(PRWEB) May 7, 2005, an internet distributor for Pantone color products, announces the new and improved Pantone color guides are now available on their web site

The most revolutionary new product is the color bridge. The Pantone color bridge is a must have guide for web and graphic designers. This guide contains CMYK percentages for reproducing the solid color in 4 color process, as well as HTML values, enabling web designers to use the Pantone palette in web design. The standard for web design has been the Netscape browser safe palette, which only contains 216 colors . The most recent statistics show that 94% of internet surfers have browsers which are capable of displaying a minimum of 65,000 colors. So why are designers using only 216 colors? Until now, incorporating Pantone solid colors has been difficult. With the Pantone color bridge, HTML values are printed underneath the solid color chip, allowing web designers to expand their color palette to 1000 colors. The web safe color palette is now officially dead. If you would prefer using software, the Pantone Colorist includes the same solid color palette, and works with any software program accessing the Windows or Mac color pickers, such as Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Front Page, Apple Keynote, or Macromedia Web Tools. How much easier can it get to incorporate Pantone colors in your web designs?

The Pantone color cue has also been redesigned, combining the Pantone solid palette and the Pantone Fashion and Home palette in one easy to use tool. The PANTONE® Color Cue™2 simplifies color identification and selection for interior designers, graphic designers, stylists, merchandisers, apparel designers and manufacturers. Picking the right color is one of the most important design decision that you can make. With a simple click of the Color Cue™2 on any surface, you can identify the closest PANTONE solid color or Fashion and Home color. The new Color Cue™2 also comes bundled with the popular Fashion and Home color guide, to use for sample shopping, client, or an important vendor meeting. Once you start using the Color Cue™2, you will wonder how you ever got along without it.
