Bill Hilson, originally trained in architecture, turned to graphic design and illustration for his professional focus. Bill introduced “desktop publishing” to some of the largest ad agencies in NYC, forever transforming the production landscape. As creative director to the HiFi Color Project, Bill helped introduce the new HiFi Color printing techniques to the design and printing community. He was first to design and print using an experimental 7-colorant process, the first to use Pantone´s HexachromeTM in a commercial application, and also the first designer to print using frequency-modulated (“stochastic”) screening systems.
