The recent advancements in the web browser allow graphic designers to
envision new possibilities regarding creation on the web. However, it
remains a window through which design is seen. This thesis seeks to
develop a programmatic method that questions the original role of display
of the web browser and redefines it by investigating its alternative
role of tool in the graphic design process. Through exploratory work,
this research demonstrates that graphic designers can benefit from a
more pragmatic and logical approach to creation and invites them to
adopt a process similar to the one of a programmer through the use of
the web browser as a tool. Furthermore, this thesis illustrates that
the web browser can be a fertile space for experimentations.
