CREATIVE CODING & CRYPTO DESIGN Shaping our digital lives
Must a good designer be able to encode in the future? As more designes takes place on or behind the screen, that question is more pressing than ever. Interfaces, serious games, applications and websites require a robust design and it's a sector that will continue to grow in the coming years. Do designers have a real voice in this area or are they being overshadowed by the techies? How much power does the user have in the final product? The by MOTI developed Crypto Design Challenge goes one step further by also taking a closer look on the extremely complicated securing of text and image. In art schools most attention is focused towards developing artistic vision and visual style and technology is hardly an issue, while at the technical universities, the artistic and creative visual aspect remains underexposed. The Crypto Design Challenge will provide a bridge between the two worlds. Visual designers need to be involved at an early stage in the development of technology. In short: who will shape and secure our digital domain and what do we as an audience actually think is desirable?
