It’s time to do your free online eye test as everyone knows the importance of a good eye or 2 if you’re going to be in the graphic design or print industry. We have used the Farnsworth Munsell 100 Hue Test before. In 2001 I personally scored a 2. Flexed my muscle, dropped the PMS book and walked out of the pressroom. 2 years ago I gave it another run after 13 years of training my eyes on presschecks; scored a 4….not so pleasing, not so bad either.
This morning I decided to give the online eye test another run and see what 15 years of
aging training has done. Scored a 0. Perfect. You want me on that critical presscheck. You NEED me on that critical presscheck. Proof below.
What’s your score?
Update 5.12.2020: I just took the test again and came in with a 2. That’s right. A 2. So somehow in 2001 I scored a 2. Aged 15 years and scored a 4. Then 4 years later a 2. What? I think this shows that 1) my eyes are still strong, and 2) the hues are so close that simple mistakes can be made. The results showed that I missed numbers 23 and 24 which are the blue/green region. I’ll look back on this in a year or 2 and see where we are. I’m just glad the online eye test website is still up. Best of luck to all of you and keep us informed on your results!
