Jon Hempstead achieves unbeatable results with ProofMaster
Jon Hempstead is well known as the founder of Hempstead May, a post production creative studio based in London and New York. At Hempstead May, Jon often worked for brands such as Burberry, Adidas, H&M, Louis Vuitton and Nike; and his work was regularly featured in Vogue, ID, Pleasure garden, Wall Street Journal and other such magazines.
After many years based in central London, Jon decided to head for a more active life in the South-West of England to get a better work-life balance. In 2020 Jon and his family made the move full time to Cornwall, building a home studio for post production. While work is balanced with family life now – he still works for many of the advertising industry’s luxury brands; customers who still demand the highest quality retouching for their images and contact proofing is an important part of delivering that service. As part of the setup for his new studio, Jon was looking around for a new proofing solution that would deliver the kind of quality he was used to at a price point his new venture would be able to justify.
Jon was pleasantly surprised by the user-friendliness of ProofMaster, which proved to be remarkably simple to set up via remote installation. Since ProofMaster is compatible with both Windows and macOS, Jon could conveniently utilize his iMac for the task. Taking advantage of the remote installation option, we patiently waited until Jon had his printer set up. Once that was done, we remotely installed ProofMaster and assisted Jon in creating the necessary profiles. Given the circumstances of the pandemic lockdown we were facing, this solution proved to be absolutely perfect.
As we make the adjustment to smaller scale office working and working from home, businesses are looking at ways to use technology to connect staff and equipment. ProofMaster and PrintFactory software allows customers to connect proofing and inkjet printing via the PrintFactory Cloud. Regardless of location, work can be printed, certified, audited and shared with all stakeholders in the production chain. Payment by SaaS allows businesses to scale up and down as their needs change.
