Creating colour profiles for the risograph

While experimenting with the risograph to complete this publication, a way to create reproducible output profiles for the risograph emerged. The output profiles optimise images in a way that enables a reproduction on the risograph with the highest possible colour fidelity. Images are effectively colour-separated automatically so they can be depicted using the risograph’s colour palette – classic colour management. In theory, colour management ensures a standardised colour behaviour. In practice, especially concerning the risograph, there is a sense of vagueness about it – do colours always look the same? Is this colour profiling even worth it? Can the profiles be used in Photoshop afterwards?
