Here’s a wonderful short film by The Printing Ink Company in Canada that takes us through the process, techniques and craft of ink creation. The company shares the methods they use to create every color in the PANTONE spectrum, the challenges they face and the attention to detail that goes into making every jar of ink. The film brings to life the passion and joy of color creation and is a must watch for art students, designers and everyone else in the business.
Here’s an interesting infographic by Ink Technologies that covers the history and evolution of ink from 2500 BC to present day.
