The use of curvature plots for the design of curves that have to meet aesthetic requirements is discussed. The aim is to emphasize the usefulness of curvature as a measure for curve fairness. A local method to optimize the curvature plot of a given cubic spline curve is presented. It automatically determines where the curve is to be faired and can be applied repeatedly. A straightforward generalization to surfaces is easy to formulate.<
