No Pantone, No Photoshop | DesignNotes by Michael Surtees

No Pantone, No Photoshop

no Pantone

Like all absolutes, there are none – though I was struck by two recent things I read on the web recently. From the Barbarian Group website I was in a section called barbaripedia where they “talk” to potential people. One such person is the outside Art Director. What was fascinating about the conversation was that they’re trying to talk to a lot of different skill sets, both the young hotshot and the old person that still design web stuff in illustrator in cmyk mode. I just liked the candor of how they go about letting people know how some aspects of web work should be produced. Read the full conversation at http://tinyurl.com/62sxdj

no Photoshop

The other post that made sense to some degree was from 37 Signals in which they talk about Why They Skip Photoshop. Both the points they make and all the comments for and against that idea are worth considering. While I don’t think Photoshop is going away anytime soon I’ve yet to read something that really throws out the practical reasons why sometimes Photoshop isn’t the best way to show comps.
