Words as grids: How push.generator was brought to life

Whilst browsing Creative JS we came across this cool piece of software: The push.generator. It was created by Philipp Sackl and gives you the power to make graphics from words. This software is already firmly a part of the push.conference branding and design – you can experience it here (it’s fun to play with, as different words create unique block configurations).

On the concept of push.generator, Philipp says “The decision for using text/letters as a data source for the generator came easy. It is extremely practical, versatile and there is a wide range of possible applications. It covers everything from name badges to Twitter visualizations.”

You can read more here on how Philipp and his team created it and learn insights into the decisions they made along the way.

Why not follow along with the code of this project on GitHub.
