The Purpose of the Open Colour Standard

Brief words about the Open Colour Standard: OCS is a union of colour theory and large scale information organization. OCS will be executed within an open source framework.

Open Colour Standard Goals
  • Create an Open Colour Standard to rival proprietary colour spaces
  • study colour for commercial and artistic uses in an open and transparent way, within the spirit of FLOSS
  • educate designers, creators, businesses about the importance and benefits of open standards
  • grow a community of open source colour developers
  • take the prohibitive costs out of getting precise colour in print media

The mission of the Open Colour Standard will be to:
  • educate the populous about colour
  • democratize the precise use of colour in real world applications
  • encourage experimentation and development with colour
  • make colour accessible
