How artificial intelligence is changing the visual design world

Artificial intelligence is becoming more and more present in the world of communication and design and a lot companies are integrating it into their daily work. We constantly hear about AI and in what direction it is changing the way we work and what impact it is having on the world of design. What we should focus on right now is understanding the potential of it’s capabilities and exploiting it to grow our business without changing underlying resources.

The most widely used and well-known artificial intelligence tool right now is ChatGPT, which has slowly laid the foundation to revolutionize the public perception of AI.

Looking at visual design, integrating AI into the daily workflow opens numerous possibilities to innovate and increase the efficiency around the creation of visuals and designs. Using artificial intelligence as part of the visual design process allows to optimize the entire workflow and automate certain steps very easily and quickly.

But how can AI really help the visual design workflow? These are some of the points on which AI can support our daily visual design tasks:

  • Ideation of visual design concepts that can support our brainstorming process
  • Generate content quickly to be integrated into a complex and structured design such as palettes, patterns or stock images for the product or brand to advertise
  • Creation of prototypes and mock-ups that can be easily tested by clients and users
