about WYSKA

We have expertise in media of all types. 
Software Architects, Media & Production Technologists

Hi, I’m Chris Heric... nice to almost meet you. WYSKA is a philosophy as much as it is a name. It is about sharing experiences and knowledge in an open, and professional forum. We are passionate about software and technology, and our experience working with software developers and & media production facilities large, and small give us a unique insight "from the trenches", of production professionals.   We've spent more than 35 years to help developers to make awesome tools that meet their customer's needs more perfectly. We take the User Experience and Capabilities side of software, solutions and workflows very seriously. Software should be intuitive, not arcane. We study the way that people involved production work, and how to streamline workflows around that. From print, to www, to 3D, we have experience in how things are made, produced, & published. 3D print in particular has great potential for the printing industry to use our extensive experience in imaging manufacturing, to become experts in 3D manufacturing.
With decades of work in the standards communities for graphic arts, we also help to drive the future. Feel free to browse this site for some insight, and please do not hesitate to contact us. We help to develop, incubate, and harbor solutions... and we can take your Legos, and turn them into many things. We focus upon a simple philosophy:

Digital Systems... for Analog People.

What We Do...

We work like you work...

We've traveled the world, and we know global and local working habits from Asia to Australia & Europe to North America. We specialize in custom solutions for a broad spectrum of entities in the graphic production world.

Imaging, and 3D Print

 3D printing is a technology in its infancy. It has similarities to the birth of the Desktop Publishing that are striking.
I have been active in 3D printing for a number of years, and we are increasingly focused upon the software used in 3D as modern "print". The history of how desktop publishing evolved from a garage/lab experiment into a refined process is eerily similar to that which we are experiencing in 3D printing. Using history as our guide, we can plan for, and even predict the future. 3D Printing is evolving into a manufacturing process, and our thoughts are that it should be done by print professionals... people who have observed and lived the change of printed material from analog to digital printing. The deja vu of these similarities between the birth of desktopo publishing and that of 3D printing should serve as a guide as to how this emergent technology will mature.

UX/Featureset Design

How your users use your applications and tools should not be an afterthought. I specialize in user-based application design that meets those needs perfectly. I have spent years in the trenches of production, and as a result I know how workflow, and efficiency can be maximized to help your customers become more profitable.

Application Architecture

Software is a modern artform. Because of its technical nature, it is most common for applications to be designed by engineers. Often this development leads to tools that are not user-friendly, or lack the full feature requirements of a user or customer. Because my focus is on how work gets done, I can help to make your tools that much more appealing, and appropriate to your customers needs. Happy users make for good customers.


We have a lot of experience in print and publishing workflows, and JDF/MIS consulting. Modern workflow requires standardized methods and tools. JDF brings that and a lot more with its MIS-centric workflow. 

ANALYTICS & Workflow

It was a short honeymoon between the first film output, to fully-imposed digital plates. We went from "Wow, you got a digital page out of the imagesetter, and it worked!", to "Ok, how many plates can you impose or output an hour?" in a matter of months. Due to that heavy pressure of production efficiency, it is now more important than ever to work in a clever, efficient manner.
