With technological development of product designs, products of various concepts have been developed and products by customized design concepts have been actively launched. For successful development, it is necessary to convey the target concept to the product development process exactly in order to create the targeting design. The study found the design concept of mobile phones with a boom box through emotional verbal expression, and defined the concept target by using visual images in accordance with the relative target with a view to looking for the design concept suitable to product development target. Regarding the visual image, the test for coordination among participants was conducted to select the image on which the interest groups participating in the development reach an agreement. As a result of the test, it aimed to propose the method to select concepts and images for rational choice by means of clustering algorithms. This method is considered to contribute to building the design concept and actualizing GUI design.
