The Principles of Design Zen – Part 1: Balance

 

If you’re a seasoned graphic artist, you’re sure to have a strong understanding of the principles of design. You live and breathe these principles, as they are most essential concepts used in almost everything you create.

But they can also apply outside of design and can be used as the fundamental building blocks for our daily lives, and strengthening our own creativity.

The Beauty of Generative Art

 

Generative Art refers to artwork that has been created algorithmically, often with the aid of a computer and widely available software. It can be easy to create very beautiful and detailed works with just a few simple rules and some basic programming knowledge. Ranging from the highly chaotic to the extremely ordered and blending everything in between, generative art reflects many of the rules and patterns we observe in nature and strikes a beautiful balance between science and art.

Even though generative art and design actually has a fairly long history through the use of analog systems, its influence continues to grow. Especially with the advent of many open-source applications freely available to download all over the web.
