Communicate Your Colour Your Way: NCS – Natural Colour System.

NCS is the internationally recognised standard for communicating colours and colour matching. It is a scientifically based colour system for accurate colour matching across industries, markets and even substrates. This has made this colour system a global standard for sorting, standardisation and communication of all colour. All surface colours can be described with a NCS Notation. NCS is based on how we perceive colour visually, this system allows you to describe colour on all imaginable surfaces.

NCS System is 3 dimensional and scientifically developed colour system that holds and visualizes all colours, the navigation, communication and control of colours. NCS simplifies the definition of colours, helps customers understand the connection between colour, light and materials, in order to create colour harmonies and achieve the intended results – from design to production. 

NCS – Internationally recognised colour standard for colour matching.

The same colour must be possible to reproduced on different materials and different products from different manufacturers in different countries.

Paint Colour Matching: You purchased a Persian Tapestry and you now wish to match your paint colour of your room to the secondary colour. The purpose of the exact colour matching is very important so that the colours must be the same regardless of the manufacturer and materials. This is made possible by a mutually agreed national and international standardised colour communication system in a precise, clear-cut way across industries, countries and languages.

NCS colour notations and accurate colour samples provide the industry with the tools needed in order to always achieve the right colour on important products.

“This logical colour notation system builds on how humans’ see colour; a notation represents a specific colour precept and describes the colour visually. It is not dependant on the limitations caused by pigments, light rays or nerve signals.”
LISA TAYLOR is Africa’s leading Colour Analyst, Forecaster, Trainer, Corporate Colour Consultant and Colour Specialist.

Lisa Taylor was instrumental in the adoption of The NATURAL COLOUR SYSTEM (NCS) by national authorities and played a key role in standardising colour in South Africa as Natural Colour System is the industry benchmark. Lisa Taylor has worked with the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) to translate the National Colour Standard into NCS (SANS 1091 – 2004). Every NCS notation has a CMYK, RGB and LAB value – this means that any material can be formulated into an NCS colour.

Lisa Taylor has been active in the South African architectural, design and decor scene for many years, providing manufacturers with analysis and forecasting information. Lisa is best known as the Southern African Development Community distributor for the Natural Colour System (NCS). The NCS is the understandable international colour order system for colour selection, specification, communication and the control of colour in design, architecture, research, marketing and manufacturing and is entirely based on how the human being sees colour. Lisa Taylor has almost single-handedly changed the way South Africa views colour and colour specification. IID (The South African Institute of the Interior Design Professions)
