Years ago, I remember being quite astonished with Processing, a language used for creating visual and interactive graphics. I still find it quite impressive to see designers like Etinne Jacob pushing software animation forward through visually-stimulating and creative coding. Check out some examples of his work here. My favorite hands down is the tetris-meets-pacman aesthetic of his 2022 animation series. It looks like he even has a tutorial worth following!

Simon C. Page, another programmer/illustrator using generative code in Adobe Illustrator to make stunning artwork as well. Check out his excellent artwork here which also makes for great pillow covers and trippy wall posters.

Maybe I need to expand my repertoire of design skills with some Processing. But first, I need to learn to love the compiler. And I’m not ready for that relationship yet, hah!
