Generative design, once known only to insiders as a revolutionary method of creating artwork, models, and animations with programmed algorithms, has in recent years become a popular tool for designers. By using simple languages such as JavaScript in p5.js, artists and makers can create everything from interactive typography and textiles to 3D-printed furniture to complex and elegant infographics.
This updated volume gives a jump-start on coding strategies, with step-by-step tutorials for creating visual experiments that explore the possibilities of color, form, typography, and images. Generative Design includes a gallery of all new artwork from a range of international designers---fine art projects as well as commercial ones for Nike, Monotype, Dolby Laboratories, the musician Bjork, and others.

Technical Communication

An attractive, engaging book, from the moment one gives it a quick glance and is amazed by the picture's art quality, to the moment one digs into the details of the code and one's mind is exposed to the possibilities of generative design.
