☠️ Game Over for designers
In the past few days, designers have panicked and responded in two ways:
😅 Present Scenario: AI makes our work faster and improves our designs.
😬 Future Scenario: AI will replace our jobs and maybe make learning UX/UI Design pointless.
🧬 Throughout history, those (🧔🏽 humans or 🦍 animals) who learned how to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed. You either adapt, or you die 😵.
In the last few days, Helen Zhou and Arnaud Bernard introduced us to Galileo AI, a powerful AI capable of creating UI designs and ready for use in Figma.
They are not alone because Diagram is bringing to the market a Github Copilot-like AI design tool called Genius and the Figma plugin Magician.
🔄 Some alternatives for ChatGPT
Some newly launched websites promise they can tell if the content was created by humans or AI now that everybody’s using ChatGPT. Since ChatGPT is growing so fast, it won’t be possible for a tool to grow fast enough to be ahead of ChatGPT at the moment.
AI tools I use and will keep using.
I plan to keep bots working for me, use all AI tools in the market in my design process, and start testing and incorporating new ones like starryai.
Like many people, I was expecting a big announcement from Google. Unfortunately, the chat tool Google Bard was disappointing and embarrassing for the big tech.
The tools I mentioned in my Miami Hack Week workshop are below.
– Juno, don’t you have shame on your face using all these AI tools?
– No, just beauty. 😘
How to get the most from ChatGPT?
Check out my LinkedIn post, or at least try this step-by-step guide to get the most out of ChatGPT. You need to follow these steps to write a good prompt:
- What you need: A blog, email, or Instagram caption.
- Who’s writing: From whose perspective should the text be?
- Who is your audience, and who the intended text is for?
- What you want to say and your Call-to-Action: this is where the core of the message gets created.
🛒 Best Practices for Mobile E-commerce
Taking into consideration that more than 60% of website traffic comes from mobile devices, with approximately 4.32 billion active mobile internet users, we should know more about how to improve the user experience effectively. This comprehensive study from Baymard Institute is an incredible benchmark tool to help you to understand what to improve.
They compared more than 70 top e-commerce sites and added 12,000+ worst and best practice mobile examples from the top-grossing e-commerce sites in the US and Europe in the categories below:
- Homepage & Category Navigation (32 guidelines)
- On-Site Search (38 guidelines)
- Product Lists & Filtering (60 guidelines)
- Product Page (93 guidelines)
- Cart & Checkout (107 guidelines)
- Site-Wide Design & Interaction (23 guidelines)
❤️ Font-Pairing and Colors
I’ve been testing these tools, and trying out some creative combinations was fun. Wishing you some fun with Mixfont and Khroma.
