The idea of creating a machine that can mimic human intelligence is a mainstay in the field of technology. We have already made the jump from “AI” being a movie from the early 2000s to something we take for granted as it sets our alarms for us on our iPhones.

However, contrary to what we may believe, AI is still in a nascent space, and there are still some ways to go with regards to robots completely taking over the design industry.
While humans spend a lot of time thinking out design solutions through a more hybrid creative/logical thought process, AI is a hyper-logical system of decisions that lead to largely predictable goals.
That being said, AI presents a set of possibilities for designers (still human) in making more informed, if not sophisticated decisions.
AI makes life easier for the designers
- AI helps designers by bringing them closer to the latest design trends while allowing them to focus on the bigger picture. AI does most of the heavy-lifting, freeing up large space in the designers’ heads, giving them more room for creativity.
- Instead of a person spending hours combing through a mountain of data trying to come up with ways to improve on it, AI can understand those problems and nudge designers in the right direction.
- The power of AI lies in the speed and optimization at which it can analyze vast amounts of data and suggest design adjustments which a designer can then cherry-pick.
- And since AI doesn’t get tired or need coffee breaks, designers don’t need to spend valuable time babysitting their program looking over its shoulder for mistakes.
- All in all, having AI tools at hand boosts engagement, leads to more conversions, and provides an overall meaningful experience.
What are some of the most interesting AI-powered design tools to help designers?
Designers are always looking for a tool that simplifies the process of creating new colour palettes. Choosing the right colour palette can be tricky as it holds a lot of weight on the brand.
Khroma is essentially an infinite scroll of colours combinations. It uses AI to learn which colours you like and creates limitless palettes to discover and use in your designs. Choosing a set of colours will train a neural network-powered algorithm to generate colours one likes.
It’s free to use and can get you the perfect colour scheme in under a minute. But of course, nothing beats learning the colour theory. […]
