In 1963, Lawrence Herbert, Pantone's founder, created an innovative system for identifying, matching and communicating colors to solve the problems associated with producing accurate color matches in the graphic arts community. His insight that the spectrum is seen and interpreted differently by each individual led to the innovation of the PANTONEŽ MATCHING SYSTEMŽ, a book of standardized color in fan format.

Approximately 99 percent of all color blind people suffer from red-green color blindness. Statistics reveal that around 75 percent of people suffering from red-green color blindness have problems with green perception, while the remaining 24 percent have problem with red perception. But this doesn't mean that a person suffering from red-green color blindness tends to mix up between red and green colors only. The fact is that the problem prevails in the whole color spectrum. The most common form of color blindness is deuteranomaly, a form of red-green color blindness. Red-green color blindness is a recessive sex linked, and therefore we see that more men are color blind than their female counter parts.
