Where Art & Technology Meet
Generative designer & experimental animator
Toni Mitjanit was born in Manacor (Spain) in 1977. He is Bachelor in Computer Science in 2002 by Universitat de les Illes Balears (UIB), Ph-Degree in Computer Graphics on Internet in 2002 by FUEIB, Master in Multimedia Production & Creation in 2007 by Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC), Degree in Photography in 2010 by Escola Superior de Disseny de Palma (ESD). Toni works at the level of media, video art, computational art, generative design and experimental animation regularly since 2010. He explores innovative audiovisual expressive ways through creative coding using data visualization, human/machine interaction, autonomous agents, physics and randomness. All his audiovisual creations are produced by coding his own software in different programming languages.
GeneTypo is a typographical work-in-process project that consists of the arrangement, style and appearance of typefaces through different generative techniques, based on computational creativity and using creative coding. The main aim of the project is to explore different generative techniques and procedural approaches in order to produce generative, experimental, transitional, and virtual typographies. GeneTypo project’s approach is to conceive and create each letter as if it were an emergent artwork piece. The fundamental design principles, like balance, proportion, perspective, emphasis, movement, pattern, repetition, rhythm, variety, harmony, and unity take an important role into the conceptual design and implementation of every generative typeface.
