Hi there,

I am a PhD Student at the University of Wolverhampton, UK, and am focusing my research on the perceptual evaluation of colour representation in Digital Architectural Images used for communication. The purpose of the investigation is to investigate the divide in the perceptual evaluation of digital architectural colour between Architects and their Clients, with the overall goals being to:
a) Establish if there is a true divide between these 2 groups surrounding digital colour representations of architecture
b) Evaulate the credibility and quality of these image forms as a communicative source within the architectural design industry
c) Develop a mean of delineation to optimise the use of digital colour within digital architectural imaging, improving its communicative value.

I am currently though seeking subjects to particpate in a number of online experiments dealing with specific sections attuned to the perceptual evaluation of colour. In total, there are 5 online experiments, all which take around 10-15 minutes to complete. If you are interested in the research area I would be most grateful if you could participate in one or more of the experiments. As i sai, they are all based online, at the following address:

All of the investigations are completed anaonymous to protect the data submitted, and considering the data sample am requiring to validate this research, if you, one of your collegues, or any person you know would be willing to particpate it would be the greatest of help.

Furthermore, if anyone would like to contribute any other information about this subject for my research, this also would be of great help.

If there are any queries or questions about the investigation, please do not hesitate to contact me at

Thanks a lot for you help,
