History of Ocean Color
This company was founded in 1995 with the purchase of a first-generation wide-format color printer that could print any photo or layout up to 36 inches wide by any length. Over the past 20 years we have upgraded to much better printing and computer technology and developed a thorough understanding of art and science of display graphics.
We have now served customers in every state in the union plus a number of other countries in every continent (except Antartica). We have produced countless trade show displays for spaces as small as a 6 ft. table to as large as filling a 35 ft. by 90 ft. space at the Las Vegas Convention Center. We have come up with custom solutions to solve every manner of exhibiting challenge. We have come to understand the needs of customers in countless segments of the U.S. economy, from health care to software to manufacturing.
Going forward Ocean Color is specializing in more efficient and portable displays, such as banner stands and hanging banners that can be placed in an overhead compartment of a plane. There is a trend toward smarter, less bulky displays that are not so expensive to ship and set up.
The full history of this business really goes back to my love for photography when I was a boy. Raised as the son of a career Foreign Service Officer and an artist, I was exposed to the rich variety of culture and visual aspects of several foreign countries. My mother influenced my sense of art and esthetics. She was fascinated by the pageantry and gallantry of the Berbers from the Atlas Mountains. Her artwork can be seen at a web site I created in her memory: www.eleanordickinsonartist.com
