Once the basis for a differentiated performance profile has been created, the color designer displays all materials, samples, photos, etc. in front of him. He views the display and allows it to have an effect on him. He also studies the analysis results.
The haptic testimonies of this preliminary work represent a kind of project specification that serves the colour designer as a design guideline for his colour concept. They represent the analytical and visual as-is state.
The target state is represented in the form of semantic differential and comments to the impression. They represent the design specifications for the colour concept, with which the designer develops the colour and material moods of the rooms. The existing evidence of the actual state should merge with the newly added materials and colours to create a future room atmosphere in the new colour concept. The aim of this design process is to coordinate all elements of the interior design in such a way that they support each other.
The colour designer visualises this design process and the future room ambience with colour and material collages as well as colour and material samples. The collages and samples help the colour designer to visually present, explain and justify the colour and material concept. The presentation also serves to clarify final design decisions and acceptance of the colour concept by the client.
For larger projects, the colour designer creates and implements colour concepts for demonstration purposes in show rooms or show apartments.
On the basis of developed and existing colour and material samples, the colour designer explains and justifies the room concept to the clients and interested room users during a presentation. In conversation with the clients and those present, the colour designer answers and clarifies any questions regarding the concept.
As far as the colour to the human being is concerned, the design concept must be designed in such a way that it creates the best possible visually undisturbed conditions for the individual human being. However, this requires an unprejudiced examination of user wishes and the ideas of decision-makers. This of course requires dialogue, the willingness to communicate and cooperate as well as distance from subjective colour ideas on the part of consultants, designers and other decision-makers when developing a design task.
A responsible colour design concept, which includes the light and material concept, should fulfil basic, physiological and psychological requirements.
