some simple designs

The images at the top and bottom of this post were made in Processing and were inspired by some of the exercises from the 1972 book Principles of Two-Dimensional Design by Wucius Wong

Forty years ago this book introduced a language for thinking and talking about the then emerging world of modern design. Today it could also be a source of exercises in basic programming, particularly well-suited for Processing. 

Wong's later book, Principles of Three-Dimensional Design includes really nice examples of geometric sculpture, many based on polyhedral forms.
