Colour Knowledge Survey

You can find the survey here.

The Colour Knowledge Survey is an attempt to determine the level of understanding of colour in the general community as part of my PhD research into the development of a new, open, colour system. That’s open as in, ‘open source’ or in the ‘public domain’. Unlike the Pantone Colour Matching System which has dominated colour vocabulary for the last 60 years. At least, in the graphic design community…

Pantone has served the world well enough but it’s a proprietary system owned by an American corporation and my belief is that the naming and matching of colours should be an open system we can all agree on.
