Classmate Hae Wan Park and I will be collaborating on making generative greeting cards with a focus on using the techniques learned in this class to create typefaces. We will split up the work by having each of us create two approaches (so the work would be split vertically instead of horizontally). Some approaches I am considering include:
- Using turtles to trace images in a pattern, similar to my project last week
- Having the user draw curves with a mouse and use those stored curve objects to generate random patterns (see below and attached proof of concept video)
- Create a grid system that would place typefaces in certain colors and sizes across the canvas
We will need assistance creating a simple interface/home page so the user can navigate to each of the 4 approaches; upon quick research, the p5 libary p5.gui might be helpful.
