We present human guided evolution of brochure documents. The user interacts with a genetic algorithm, which evolves placeholders, each placeholder represented with one of three shapes: (1) ellipse, (2) rectangle, and (3) rounded rectangle. The user guides the evolutionary process by evaluating a small subset taken from a large population of documents. Along with the subjective user input, individuals in the population of the genetic algorithm are evaluated on a set of objective heuristics for document design. We present pretest results, including an evaluation of the tool and documents created.
