Generative Covers

Generative book covers for Otwórz Książkę NGO web portal.

In 2012 Variable was approached by Polish NGO Centrum Cyfrowe to solve a problem of showcasing CC books without CC licence for their covers. During several months of collaboration a number of layout systems were designed to take book metadata (number of pages, publication year, category) and turn them into beautiful covers. The project was initiated by Marcin Ignac giving fundation to data parsing, text layouts and first generative algorithms. During his internship at Variable Vladimir Kuchinov added a touch of graphics design skills, grid layouts, better typography and more cover design implementations.
