Generative Design: Visualize, Program, & Create with JavaScript in p5.js was published in German, English, French, and Japanese by Verlag Hermann Schmidt in 2009. This book has emerged from the diploma thesis “Generative Systeme”, conducted by Laub and Groß at Hochschule für Gestaltung Schwäbisch Gmünd. With Generative Design, authors aim to present coding as a tool for art and design. They are willing to overcome the prejudices and misunderstandings that lead people to think coding is only for programmers.

With thirty-five illustrated case studies, strategies, and practical instructions on how to create digital art, this book is a must-read for everyone who wants to explore a new way of creating their own sculptures, animations, typography, and more by using programming languages.
