A packing is an arrangement of geometric elements within a container region in the plane. Elements are united to communicate the overall container shape, but each is large enough to be appreciated individually. Creating a packing is challenging since an artist should arrange compatible elements so that their boundaries interlock with each other.

In this talk, we will present a local search framework to design and analyze both combinatorial algorithms and rounding algorithms for experimental design problems. This framework provides a unifying approach to match and improve all known results in D/A/E-design and to obtain new results in previously unknown settings.
