Description:

As locative media and augmented reality spread into the everyday world so it becomes important to create aesthetic visual markers at scale. We explore a designer-centred approach in which skilled designers hand-craft seed designs that are then automatically recombined to create many markers as subtle variants of a common theme. We extend the topological approach to creating visual markers that has previously been shown to support creative design with new techniques: area order codes and visual checksums so as to enhance aesthetics, scalability and reliability. We show how the topological structure of such markers provides a basis for automatically recombining designs to create variations. We describe the implementation of our approach in a new tool and demonstrate it through the creation of beautiful, personalized and interactive wallpaper.
