Abstract [en]

The goal of this artistic development work was to deepen the knowledge in the area of colouring for products. Strategies and choices of colour are often made without using design methods or engaging the user, thus not making much use of all the developments in user-centred methodology otherwise influencing many areas of design. In this series of experiments I performed, two different issues were central. The first challenge was to look into creative methods for making colour suggestions. In order to deepen the understanding of process and method, the second issue investigated was to perform colour studies where chance played a central role. The methods developed were evaluated through exercises in teaching “colour on form” as a subject for BFA students in industrial design. In this paper, I report on these experiments, the methods developed, the output they resulted in, as well as reflecting on their potential relevance in design education.
