How connected color measurement devices are changing the way we track color trends and color quality

Posted by Elaina Principato in Color Industry, Color Science | 1 comments

Throughout history, color has been the domain of the artists and creative people in our society, like painters, architects, and designers. Aside from a well-developed understanding of color theory, decisions about color are made largely on intuition or taste. However, in today’s world, color decisions can have economic consequences, not just aesthetic ones.

For example, when you need to match a paint color on your wall, verify that brochures have your company colors correct, or even determine if an avocado is ripe or not, using intuition instead of data can be costly as well as unsightly. And if you’re a fruit producer that exports thousands of pounds of avocados on a weekly basis, misjudging the ripeness of your crop can have a serious impact on your bottom line.
