How can I generate unique patterns, as they did for these Nutella jars? See, for example, the video Algorithm designs seven million different jars of Nutella.
Some excerpts from Nutella 'Hired' an Algorithm to Design New Jars. And It Was a Sell-Out Success:
The "algorithm" is called HP Mosaic and is included free in HP SmartStream Designer for HP printers.
More about how the algorithm works here: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/hp-mosaic-20-steven-chow
HP Mosaic takes the vector PDF file as input (also known as a Seed file), and generates a large number of variations on the file by transforming it — scaling, transposition, and rotation — randomly.
