for Professionals

The smartness of the NCS System available on any device. Integrated  directly into your creative workflow.

NCS+ on the web

Navigate the NCS system

The popular NCS Navigator is finally back in your browser

Navigate the entire NCS system on a big screen using the NCS Navigator and find exactly the colour you need in an intuitive way. Ever had a hard time finding "just the right red"? Then the Navigator is for you!

Collaborative Boards

Collaborate in colour projects, with anyone, anywhere

Need a way to communicate colour and collaborate in projects with colleagues working from home or from another city/country? Work together by adding colours and pictures, name them after their purpose and share the results with your clients.

Translate to & from NCS

No more shady websites and uncertain colour translations

Translate NCS notations to and from other colour formats like RGB, CMYK and Lab. We're constantly working to find the closest representations of our colour standards in other formats, so that you can rely on the fact that you're using the most correct values out there.

Export to other software

For 3D modeling, for print, for digital art, for your purpose

Whatever purpose you want to use your colours for it is likely that we can export them into a format that suits you. We support exports to Adobe softwares, Vectorworks, Powerpoint and Figma, to name a few. 

Combine colours

Find harmonising colours based on NCS research

Based on the NCS System, colours can be combined through their NCS notations following nuance, hue, blackness, chromaticness, whiteness or NCS lightness. You can therefore rely on the fact that whatever colour you pick from combinations will always harmonise.

Switch between devices
