In this first part of the book, we will go through four process steps and show for each step how coding becomes a meaningful part of our creative process. In step 1, IDEA TO VISUALS, we take a bottom-up approach and start directly with visuals and code. Our entry point to this approach is to use code directly from the concept stage of the creative process. More specifically, instead of making mood boards, sketching, writing, searching the web, or talking to experts, we suggest that you just start Processing and give it a spin. First, we look at how we can express our ideas using Processing and a few lines of code. Yes, we start really simple.
