This study took traditional Korean patterns from the most frequently used patterns in the textile design field and divided them into three groups (geometric, plant, and animal patterns). Also, it altered different textile design structural aspects and conducted a sensory test to analyze the psychological (with a focus on the visuals) tendencies toward Korean color and patterns.
1) A comparison of visual assessments on color and pattern According to the research in the pattern and assessment categories, the patterns that were three centimeters or smaller with a continuous pattern of textile design image indicated no significant connection to the types of patterns.
2) A comparison of visual assessments on pattern and color After analyzing the image differences amongst the three colors by pattern using the color black, the red butterfly pattern turned out to be impressive, individualistic, and brilliant. On the contrary, among the three pattern types, the patter with the least color assessment gap was the yun-hwa (an eight-petal Korean flower). The yun-wha pattern did not differ significantly with the color of the image.
3) A comparison of assessments between Korean male and female college students Upon analyzing the male and female college students' evaluations according to each pattern and category through the t-test, visual differences of the patterns that used complicated lines such as the butterfly pattern and warm colors, or nan-sak, were acknowledged. On the other hand, in cases where direct and simple lattice-shaped patterns and cool colors such as blue were used, the male and female students' visual differenceswere not greatly acknowledged.
According to the results from the t-test that compared the Korean and Japanese students' visual differences, the warm colors yellow and red were the only colors that showed visual difference for the yun-hwa pattern. With regards to the yellow yun-hwa pattern, the Japanese students felt it to be stronger, more impressive, and beautiful impression compared to the Korean students. With regards to the red yun-whapattern, the Korean students, compared to the Japanese students, felt it to be more feminine-looking.
