Artificial intelligence and graphic design

What does UI mean to us?

In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has become an inevitable part of everyday life, used in various industries and professions. One of the industries that has huge potential for using UI is graphic design. UI enables designers to create visually appealing and aesthetically appealing products faster and more efficiently.


UI can be used at various stages of the graphic design process, from planning to final production. The first step can be to use UI to analyze data to help develop a design strategy. This may include gathering information about the target audience and the product the designer is creating. Machine learning algorithms can analyze this data and help the designer to create designs that focus more on specific target groups.

Another way to use UI in graphic design is in the process of choosing a color palette. The UI can analyze photos, images and other visual sources to select harmonious color combinations. This can save designers a lot of time in choosing the right color scheme for their product. UI can also help in creating typography. Designers no longer need to manually set letter height and word spacing, as the UI can do this automatically. The UI can also suggest and add other aesthetic choices, such as decorative elements that increase the appeal of the text. Designers can also use the UI to create 3D models and animations. The UI can create realistic models and animations based on the designer's instructions. For example, programs that use machine learning can recognize shapes and design objects in 3D models.

Finally, UI can also help in the creation of the final product. The UI can analyze photos and other visual resources and automatically adapt them for different purposes such as print, web and mobile. This can save designers a lot of time in customizing the product for different formats and sizes.

What does this mean for creatives?

In conclusion, we can say that UI has great potential in graphic design. It can help designers with color palette selection, typography creation, 3D modeling and animation, and customization. But we must not forget that, despite the rapid progress in this field, there is still a person in the background - a graphic designer who coordinates everything into a harmonious unity, feels the needs and finesse of the client's wishes and helps him determine the final image based on the needs.

Rethink the text and keep the approximate scope: There is a lot of fear that the UI will do everything by itself and designers, photographers, copywriters and other creatives will be pushed aside and the UI will just replace them with its smart algorithms. I am far from thinking so myself, we just have to use it as a tool and not as an executive producer of our ideas. Just as photography did not displace classical painting, UI will not destroy the industry either. With smart use, it will only enhance it.
