ACE innovation, Awarded Full Fellowship of the RSA link (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) an award granted to individuals that the RSA judges to have made outstanding achievements to social progress and development.

Interviewed by GQ Men's watch magazine, asked if 3D printers would be in everyone's home in the future, my response was No! because of the technical skills required, Health and Safety concerns, material standards i.e. food hygiene and flame retardant properties for consumer products, and the issue in disposing of environmental waste.

The creative fields and engineering have helped many through the Pandemic, from personal enjoyment as a creative outlet during the social isolation, to meeting the design and engineering challenges of the new normal, including new work practices which are important as we build a healthier, inclusive and more sustainable future.

Promoting Digital Colour Accuracy.

Primarily used in the creative industries, colour management has an important role in Photography, Publishing, Packaging, Product, Fashion design and medical imaging for precision imaging and colour accuracy.

Colour Gamets
CYMK 3D print in Colour Gamets 3D Space

Every digital imaging device has its own unique colour profile a three dimensional shape for the colours that it produces, colour management adjustments output to reproduce the required colour values.

The first defined quantitative links between physical pure colours values was calculated by the international commission for illumination CIE, CIE 1931 colour space.

The Adobe 1998 ICC profile was designed to encompass most of the colors achievable on CMYK color printers, using RGB primary colors on a device such as a computer display.

iccMAX link was approved by the International Color Consortium ICC and was published as ISO 20677 link in 2019. iccMAX "enables new ways of openly communicating about light, color and appearance."
