Creative computation for visual communication design

This site presents the final student projects from the course Creative Computation for Visual Communication Design, organised at the VCD MA programme at Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture 25.10.-1.12.2022.

During the intensive, six-week course the students were introduced to the fundamentals of programming using JavaScript and the p5.js library. In addition to hands-on experiments with code, the course also provided theoretical and critical perspectives to computational practices in visual communication design.

The course projects presented here interpret the theme of A NEW LANGUAGE. Learning to program is not unlike learning a new language, with its unfamiliar syntax, foreign vocabulary and novel modes of expression. The language of computers allows designers to explore aesthetics, narratives and ways of communication which are not attainable with any other means.
