Designers have been using digital tools for many years; but most of these tools imitate traditional techniques such as drafting and layout. Increasingly, innovation in design is a result of using computers to do things that only computers can do.

This is digital design: a practice that engages deeply with digital processes, digital materials, and digital contexts.

Digital designers need to understand the fundamental elements of computing - data and algorithm - and work directly with them to create new processes, forms and practices.
