Deskriptiv, currently located in Bad Wurzach, Germany bases his digital art and pattern designs on generative methods. Generative design, or procedural design, is a switch from a product oriented thinking to a process oriented way of working. Enjoy the collection below of generative designs for today's design inspiration.

"Processes that produce shapes are a central theme of my work.” — Deskriptiv
