The artist then typically creates one or more “proofs” for client approval and - after making any necessary corrections - sees this approved work through the printing process for quality assurance. The production artist in a modern setting typically does most of his or her work by computer and should be comfortable with using this platform. Additionally, the production artist may be expected to successfully create physical copies of his or her completed work using printing equipment.
