I am working on a project for a client and got a logo from them in pdf & png format, but they are both rgb.
The logo is a bright blue and when I try to change it to cmyk for print the color changes.
I have tried in lots of different ways to maintain their color as much as possible, but with no luck. I need to send a CMYK pdf to the printer and the color of the logo is not the blue they want.
I have to keep the color because it is the brand and it is a big company.
They have already said this is all they have and always use these so it should work.
I have seen this many times recently, where many so called “oh i can use Figma and Sketch” designers produce these random, meaningless logos in RGB or with fonts not outlined (which gives errors on opening), or both. Then they deliver this to the client in PNG.
Because, you know, everybody’s hates Adobe and their monthly plans, but luckily we have Figma and Sketch now to save the world from Adobe’s ‘evil domination’. Well, yeah, in a way..
The normal way to design a logo for people who actually open Illustrator once in a while, is to first set it up for print in CMYK and always assume the thing will get printed at some point in time, regardess of one’s Figma skills.
That way, you first and foremost have a CMYK logo. Then, you convert that to RGB for web.
Your client can contact the initial designer to fix this, otherwise, if you need to do it, you need to somehow match the existing blue as close as possible and explain this process to the client (you will never ever get a 100% identical blue in CMYK).
And yes, logos are delivered separately (read: two separate, distinct files) in CMYK and RGB for this particular reason.
