Colourmatch is a periodical published by HKS, the offset printing colour system, to publicise a small selection of the 3000 or so HKS colours. Each issue presents a different topic in a specific typographic style. Most of the fonts are produced by smaller type foundries and are shown to their full advantage when printed in spot colours. Since launching Colourmatch, HKS no longer uses any product advertising printed in conventional process colours. Its Colourmatch periodical is a collectable, inspiring medium. Every issue is painstakingly printed in five spot colours and can be subscribed to free of charge.
Five full tone spot colours on basis of HKS 22 K and many stories about the amazing “22” are published in the latest HKS Colourmatch edition. The typefaces in use are Bloo [edit: renamed in 2022 to CX80] and Caporal, both by Damien Gautier , Bureau 205.
There is also a possiblity for submitting work to the HKS website:
