Creative Coding Studio
RMIT University(Digital Media)
“As the field of Digital Media expands so does the potential of what we can imagine and create as designers. Throughout the semester, we will explore multiple methods of image making as an artistic form, interactive medium and generative system. From patterns to logos, typography to visualisations, we will explore the multitude of ways we can design with code."
Every semester was in direct inspiration to a local exhibition that we’d visit as a cohort. The students were also consulted on their current aspirations and interest areas so that I could adapt the classes to suit their existing practices.
