AI is quickly changing how we design. Will it soon take over designers’ jobs?
AI won’t replace designers.
A designer using AI will.
While I hold the belief that designers will not be 100% replaced by GPT (OpenAI) or any other AI technologies, it has become essential to acquire the skills to collaborate effectively with AI. This will help designers 1) generate superior outcomes and 2) improve the quality of their work.
The emergence of tools in design such as Magician, Spline AI, MidJourney, and others. It's both thrilling and daunting to witness this evolution and raises the question: When was the last time the design industry saw a game-changing tool like these?
