Color and Communication Design Laboratory

Pursuing impressive color schemes and designs

In the globalized society, there are industrial standards that help us understand people in different countries and maintain the compatibility of information and things to facilitate the development of manufacturing. Our laboratory researches on how color charts are made based on such industrial standards in addition to printing and lighting technologies. We aim to design information devices that can spread information to all kinds of people by studying communication designs, standards, and color schemes in other countries.

For Society

About 80 percent of the information humans receive comes through the visual sense. Furthermore, 80 percent of visual information is reportedly connected to colors. Our laboratory is conceptualizing how to spread information to a wider audience in the world in an easy-to-understand manner.
