The design inspired by nature is an ongoing issue from the past to the present. There are many design examples inspired from nature. Fractal geometry formation, which is focused on this study by Asli Agirbas, is a system seen in nature. A model based on fractal growth principle was proposed for tile design.

In this proposal made with using Visual Programming Language, a tiling design experiment placed in a hexagonal grid system was carried out. Thus, a base was created for tile designs to be made using the fractal principle. The results of the case study were evaluated and potential future studies were discussed.
