Riding the new wave of creativity with generative AI

The graphic design scene is undergoing a total makeover thanks to the power of generative AI.
Back to overview

Generative AI in Design isn’t just about streamlining time-consuming tasks; it’s reshaping the whole creative game. Say goodbye to the manual grind and hello to focusing on what really rocks—unbridled creativity and innovative thinking.

Talk about game-changers: Midjourney and Adobe’s Firefly are leading the pack. These aren’t just shiny new tools; think of them as your creative wingmen in the design journey. They’re breaking the mold by offering an entirely new palette of possibilities — from idea inception to that final deliverable. With these platforms, the line between imagination and execution gets blurry, making way for an unprecedented fusion of art and technology.

But let’s keep it real. Using generative AI in design isn’t all unicorns and rainbows. We’ve got to talk about the sticky stuff like ownership and copyright. While most of these platforms roll with royalty-free images, they’re pretty much hands-off when it comes to copyrighting the final piece. Still, AI is shaping up to be a big player in design’s future.

It’s not here to steal the designer’s thunder—instead, it’s unlocking the doors to set our creativity free and whip up even better designs.

Here’s a closer look at what generative AI can bring to the design table in the future

1. — Turbocharged Idea Generation

Why settle for a brainstorm when you can ‘brain-blast’? Generative AI enables rapid conceptualization by offering numerous variations on a theme. The AI sifts through data and interprets it to create an array of design options, thereby multiplying your creative avenues. It’s like having an entire design team in the palm of your hand.

2. — A New Realm for Concept Art

Imagine if your initial sketches could evolve themselves or even propose alternate realities. Generative AI does just that, automatically creating different variations of your concept art, which can be refined to match your vision precisely.

3. — Dynamic Mood Boards

Forget static mood boards. Generative AI offers interactive and evolving mood boards that adapt according to the project’s needs or a client’s feedback. This dynamic approach ensures that your design strategy stays agile and relevant.

5. — Text-to-Image Transformation

Translate your words into visuals effortlessly. Generative AI can take a brief or a set of keywords and generate preliminary designs or even complete artworks, bridging the gap between what’s said and what’s visualized.

6. — Generative Fill for Object Manipulation

Whether it’s removing a distracting background object, extending an image, or changing the scene altogether, generative fill can handle complex alterations with ease. This brings a newfound flexibility to image manipulation.

7. — The Art of Recoloring

Want to see how your design fares in a different hue or palette? Generative AI can recolor artwork in seconds, providing multiple options and even suggesting complementary color schemes.


In the fast-paced world we navigate, generative AI is not just a technological advancement; it’s a creative revolution. It has the potential to empower designers to push boundaries and explore design territories that were previously deemed unreachable. The ‘impossible’ is now just another design challenge waiting to be conquered.
