Generative

Crochet

Product design
2016 - Present

My aim was to experiment with crocheted forms and see how it can be used in product design. I programmed a generator (link) using Processing to make randomized crochet patterns.

 

It has since grown into a business and an artistic exploration into my favorite way of making.

Designing the Generator

I used Processing to develop the crochet pattern generator. It went through a few iterations.

I wanted the pattern to be the main attraction with minimal parameters to change.

It also included helpful information on the landing page and in the generator itself.

The final design was done to match the style for the business website.

Crocheted products and prototypes

A majority of the products were made using the generated patterns.
