As designers, we’re always looking for new tools and resources to help create attractive and practical websites. We use a variety of references for our projects, from scouring design blogs and inspiration boards to doing research studies and using many other online resources.
If you have been up to date with the latest news and trends, the term “ChatGPT” and its success would have most likely reached your ears.
And so you’re probably thinking… “What can ChatGPT do for me?”
What is ChatGPT?
Simply put, ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence language model trained by OpenAI that can communicate with humans through text conversations.
It has been trained through vast amounts of written text, to the point where it has learned to understand how people speak and respond like a human.
ChatGPT is capable of covering a wide range of topics, but for this article we’ll just focus on design.
Here are some things that I have personally tested and found very helpful:
- Answer design related questions
- Provide project resources
- Generation of ideas
- User Experience (UX) Design
- Content creation
Answer design related questions
As previously mentioned, ChatGPT has been trained on a wide range of topics, including design principles, user experience, accessibility, and more. You can use ChatGPT to ask questions about these topics and get answers that can help you improve. more informed design decisions.
Provide project resources
There are many resources for design that can help you work more efficiently and effectively. These resources can increase the quality of your work while saving you a great deal of time.
However, with so many resources available on the Internet, finding the best one for your needs can be overwhelming.
ChatGPT can help provide web designers access to a wide range of design resources, such as fonts, graphics and design templates.
Generation of ideas
ChatGPT can help web designers come up with new ideas for website design or layout.
If you’re struggling to find new website design ideas, you can ask ChatGPT for suggestions. For example, you can provide a brief description of the site you’re designing, and ChatGPT can generate some ideas and suggestions to help you get started.
In this case, I asked him for some ideas for a classy, modern and fun online bookstore.
This is another example where I was asked to provide an appropriate color scheme for a health website.
User Experience (UX) Design
Research is an important step in website design. You can create an absolutely stunning website but fail to communicate it well to your audience.
Designing something to look attractive can be easy, but designing a good experience can be a difficult task.
This is where ChatGPT can help. It can help designers create user personas, user flows, and wireframes for websiteswhich can help improve the user experience.
Say you have an idea of what you want to convey on your website, but don’t know how to put it into words.
Well, ChatGPT can help you do just that. It can help create clear, concise and engaging text that can save you time and help you produce high-quality content that resonates with your target audience.
Whether it’s brand messaging, product descriptions, blog posts or headlines, you can provide a theme or theme and ChatGPT can help generate text.
You can even set multiple criteria for your content. As you can see in the example below, I asked him to write a brand message within 5 words.
