I teach graphic design in a college. I fell in love with Processing a few years ago. Oh the creative power it gave me! I could make my own tools, code multimedia installations, make generative identities and art...!
Since then, I'm a dreaming of a world where creative coding and Processing are standards skills every graphic designer is expected to master. Imagine the crazy installations, apps and designs we'd be experiencing on a daily basis!
I'm trying to convince my colleagues that Processing is the way of the future. The reaction is usually genuine curiosity and enthusiasm... mixed with a sense that it's just too cutting edge and experimental to have a real value in the market, in the industry... not a skill that we should be teaching in a college where students need to learn a "useful trade".
I'm curious about your input on that. Do you see Processing and creative coding becoming a standard skill for a graphic designer or will/should it stay something experimental some designers develop on their own, or in higher education programs? Can Processing become a standard in the industry? How can I help make creative coding and Processing just another tool in every 21h century graphic designer's toolbox?
Thanks for the input!
