In recent years, design is becoming increasingly important due to advancement of product function, which makes it increasingly difficult to differentiate product quality. Coupled with the growing demands for shorter product development lead time, systems which can create design plans effectively at the initial stage of design are indispensable. The objective of this study is to develop a system which can create designs with natural impression by quantifying natural phenomenon, mainly pattern designs like polka dots and leaf designs. The authors constructed the system using a neural network simulating the structure of the human brain and genetic algorithms simulating the heredity of living things. The effectiveness of the system was validated by using it to create design examples.
