NCS as a colour language creates a platform for communicating colours for all parts in the manufactory chain, leading the colour from idea to reality. Decision-makers for design are supported by the logic of the system, helped by the physical products and solutions, and are able to work creatively while making the right colour decisions. When final colour decisions are to be made on the actual products, NCS provides clear and simple tools to offer support in this process.
To choose colours is a challenging designer task. It is a creative choice, but also a technical one. A complete colour analysis is the first step in the process of decision-making.
The information needed to form a solid basis for colour decisions is supported by the colour analysis which shows the potential colour areas considering the market, materials, competitors etc.
When the colour decision has been made it must be communicated internally and externally. Most often, a clear colour specification is developed for each different colour.
To ensure that the colour process is working in its full capacity, it is important to continuously monitor the outcome and evaluate whether improvements are required.
