Generative Design: Pin Point

Here is an example of generative design which was created using an interesting method. The process used to create the design included dropping a number of pins to the ground, then plotting their position on a set area. This method was highly effective due to its random nature in each scatter pattern. Afterwards the design was photographed then each pin was linked to each and every other point. Thus creating an interesting geometric shape all unique to this part of the process. Then a random colour gradient was added across the shape using an online random colour generator taking the first two colours generated. This again took away any design influence to the design. This process is recorded in the booklet below. 

Using the above process a series of 10 posters were created.

Just the Type: Ademe Environmental Posters

A series of Typographic posters used to raise environmental awareness. This project was to create environmental awareness among teens for a live brief. The posters use idiomatic phrases which can be seen to focus on different environmental issues. The type itself is made from unusual materials (bottles, ice, tin foil, soil …) which reflect the phrases meaning. This project was completed whilst at ESAG Pennighen, 

This project was showcased on the design website Typography Served:

Group project with James McNaught; link to his behance account:
