Ben Barry: Facebook f8 Conference design

Friday, June 15th, 2012

In 2010 Ben Barry created the design work for the Facebook f8 conference with a variety of techniques including generative programming for the projections used during events and at the aftershow party.  The most impressive thing is that he learnt Processing just for the project showing just how easy it is to learn and apply to real projects.

For the 2011 conference the entire graphic system was developed using Processing.

I’ve been learning Processing on and off for a while now but were struggling to figure out what to create with it.  Then I discovered OpenProcessing a site that enables people to easily share their sketches and download others, which is helping me move away from tutorials and into something new.  What better way to share my experiments than to upload them back to OP.  The first of which is this little interactive sketch that draws randomly sized rectangles based on the position of the mouse.

Processing Identities

Sunday, June 21st, 2009

I’ve recently been learning the Programming language Processing and the more I use it the more excited I am by it’s possibilities, it’s refreshing to work with a language specifically designed for people that think in a visual way.  However it’s easy to get bogged down in technical details and techniques and loose sight of what you can achieve with it, the exhibition section of the Processing website is a great place to see  examples of how it can be applied to real world projects.  This collection of works show how it could be used in a design brief.
