February 24th, 2015

As computers become more intelligent and autonomous, how will the field of Design evolve? Meta design is the growing field of programming computer algorithms to create desired artifacts, such as a song or an image, or even entire design systems and styles. 

On Meta Design and Algorithmic Design Systems gives a great overview of the emerging field: NYC-based designer, programmer, and artist Rune Madsen discusses the current trends that promise to transform the world of design:

1. Design products are becoming increasingly dynamic.
2. A new generation of designers familiar with programming is rising.
3. The proliferation of more accessible algorithmic design tools.
4. Such tools greatly support the development of important, rule-based design systems.
