1.HOW AI HELP FOR DESIGNERS?
Ai now allows designers to generate images based on simple text prompts only. tools like dall-e and mid journey allow you to input abstract concepts and transform them into mass images.
2.WHAT A DESIGNER DO WITH AI ?
Designers found themselves using ai image generators such as dall-e and mid journey to explore complex ideas that were difficult or time consuming to articulate and translate into physical products. for one project, for example, i wanted to create objects that deeply connect people with the places they have visited or lived, as opposed to the fridge magnet souvenirs that tourists often buy.
3.WHY WE HAVE TO IMPROVE THE DESIGN PROCESS OF AI ?
In the fall 2022-2023 semester, the designer will have phd students develop unique products using ai image generation. the results were impressive. students created an electric his violin, a fruit-inspired chair, and shoes made from mushrooms. they all used ai in different ways, but noticed how it took unexpected paths.
when reading alarming articles about this new technology, he sometimes recalls the early days of 3d modeling systems and how some thought they would replace designers and artists. these concerns were eventually abated and designers never went back to the old massive blueprints and drawing boards.
