PAUL GUY, MENTOR: This website is dedicated to Paul R. Guy, my former manager and mentor. Paul guided me both professionally and personally while working for Schawk. He is an authority on the technical aspects of color reproduction, with more than 50 years of experience in the graphics arts and photographic industries. Paul taught me to truly understand color and the importance of color measurement, color control, process control and what is now commonly known as color management. Thanks to Paul my passion for and dedication to the field of color management was cultivated then nurtured.
Paul Guy is a graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology's Department of Photographic Technology; was a member of the CGATS executive committee and the Committee for Graphic Arts Technical Standards; a former staff member of the Graphics Arts Technical Foundation (GATF) in photography and color reproduction; and is a past Chairman of the Scitex Graphics Arts Users Association. In September 1995 The Scitex Graphics Arts Users Association chose Schawk Inc. Vice President and Technical Director, Paul R. Guy as its "Person of the Year".
The Scitex award recognized superior service and dedication to the group, which strives to inform and educate on industry advances, printing processes and equipment. At the time, only three people had been awarded the honor of "Person of the Year". Paul worked for Schawk until he retired after a terrible automobile accident in 1998.
