Design Suite

Is Color-Logic compatible with all my design software?

In order to make designing with Color-Logic as easy as possible, Color Logic supplies pre-made color palettes and plugins for most mainstream application programs (Photoshop®, Illustrator®, Indesign®). Each palette is created using intuitive palette technology to simplify the design process so that the designer can simply “Design, Click & Color”

How do I simulate all Color-Logic effects out of CMYK?

This Color-Logic video tutorial shows how separate C-L designs into layers using Illustrator and/or creating a composite CMYK design for use in CMYK print only (such as publications).

Basically the tutorial shows how to:

1. Convert a design into a CMYK representation of a 5 color metallic file. This will simulate all Color-Logic effects out of CMYK.
2. Split a design out into layers so that the silver is one layer and the CMYK on another.
