Random Compositions

One of the most exciting and maybe even unsettling discoveries in the learning process of Creative Coding in Graphic Design is randomness. It allows you to let the computer make its own, unpredictable decisions. Here two worlds collide, because from a traditional design perspective we are used to have almost full control over the things we create. Randomness reveals the full potencial of coded design: to generate any number of variations within a defined set of constraints.

In this course, we will look at an apparently simple exercise from my workshops and seminars that can lead to fascinating results. I call it it “Random Compusitions” and it is about the distribution of a few geometric shapes with the help of random parameters.

Ready? Let’s go!
