Why AI can Easily Replace Designers?

In recent months, automation and artificial intelligence has been on centre stage as AI-generated art flooded many major art sites and sparked a debate on its impacts on artists and graphic designers. The work of these AI programs is comparable to professional work, and it can be hard to tell the difference between works made by graphic designers.

For graphic designers, the presence of AI is a threat to their livelihood and a concern regarding plagiarized designs. While their fear is valid, AI has several characteristics that make them an ideal alternative to designers, and they are as follows:

1. Instant Content Personalisation

When a person meets a new individual, they tend to make assumptions about that person based on what they see and their behaviour. Graphic designers need to look into countless pieces of data to develop the right design for a specific customer base; often, it cannot appeal to other types of audiences. New designs should be created if the business wants to appeal to different audiences or tailor their graphics to a specific individual.

AI also checks these data, but it can personalize various images to suit all types of individuals and deliver them to them at the right time.

2. Creates Variations Easily

Before a designer can create variations, they will take time to create one pattern before they can create deviations from that single pattern. If the client uses different mediums to promote their business, designers must adjust the graphics to match it.

But, with AI, it will only need to see a pattern and create multiple variations almost immediately to suit where it is used.

3. Quick To Deliver Content

It has been noted above that it will take a lot of time for designers to create even one graphic because of factors like studying their client’s data and developing variations to support where it will be used. If there are any issues with the design, it may take more time to get it revised.

But with AI, it can quickly analyze the data provided by the client and process the best design to match what is needed. And as mentioned above, it can even create varieties of a design in one go.

With the constant development of technology, it is undeniable that AI will play a significant role in many industries, and it is here to stay. In the case of graphic design, AI can be a good alternative if businesses cannot afford graphic designers and are just starting in the industry. If you are a graphic designer, you shouldn’t immediately fear AI considering its limitations. You should find ways to apply it in your current work to create new types of art that can help with any project available. Even if AI becomes too good at content generation in the future, there is still something magical about having a piece that truly has a soul that a person can alter the image.

    I have been seeing a lot of posts about AI, this one👍.

    Yes I am afraid of being replaced by AI.

  2. I have experimented with the new AI feature in WordPress. It has good qualities, and it has not so good qualities. The generated pictures it produces looks nice, but there’s just something missing. Technology is good, but there’s nothing like something being created by someone with their own thoughts, hands, mind, and creativity. Robots cannot express feelings in what it creates, because someone created it. Use it, but don’t depend on it. Thanks for sharing. Very informative and interesting information about Artificial Intelligence. Have a great week.

    It’s amazing and really disconcerting at the same time, isn’t it? Thanks for listing the different AI software examples as I had no idea what people are actually using for AI creations. My ex is a graphic designer and I mentioned on the phone to him a couple of weeks ago that a piece of art won a big competition recently, before it was discovered that the art was actually created by AI! He seemed a bit defensive on the topic and said there’s no way AI could take over humans designing and creating for businesses. I wouldn’t be so sure. I think the potential for reducing the workforce is there, and at such tough times like this, that’s not going to be a good thing. Fascination for sure, but not great for humans and workers. Fab post!

    However, when a decision reeeeally counts, an intelligent human must still make the call, because AI only uses algorithms and does not “feel” the need. See the movie, I Robot, with Will Smith for how AI can make mistakes while making its “right decision.”
    The more people depend on AI, the less they will be equipped to make the decisions that count. Just as the demise of the slide rule eliminated the need for understanding multiplication, division and functions such as exponents, roots, logarithms, and trigonometry, so AI dependence will eliminate the need for understanding complex issues for many people.
