AI-Powered Graphic Design: Mastering Figma and emerging tech

Video description

In the rapidly evolving world of graphic design, the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a game changer. Our course is meticulously designed to navigate this new terrain. Spanning eight comprehensive sections, this course offers an in-depth exploration of AI's influence on graphic design, focusing on advanced software such as DALL-E and MidJourney, as well as the robust capabilities of Figma.

Section 1 lays the foundation, delving into the history and current trends of AI in graphic design. It predicts the future role of AI, setting the stage for practical applications. In Section 2, students will gain hands-on experience with AI design tools, including a detailed analysis of DALL-E and MidJourney, and mastering Figma’s advanced features. This section emphasizes the seamless integration of AI into design workflows.

Sections 3 and 4 focus on specific design tasks: creating AI-enhanced landing pages and crafting memorable logos using AI and Figma. These sections blend theoretical understanding with practical skills, ensuring students can effectively apply AI recommendations in their designs.

In Section 5, the focus shifts to designing PowerPoint imagery, leveraging AI tools for enhanced presentation design. Following this, Section 6 introduces advanced design techniques where Figma meets AI, including animation and predictive design.

Section 7 is crucial, addressing the ethical dimensions and best practices in AI design. This includes understanding AI biases and navigating the intellectual property challenges posed by AI-generated designs.

The course culminates in a final project (Section 8), where students merge their AI and Figma skills to create a comprehensive branding page, followed by peer reviews and reflections.

This course is not just about learning tools; it's about embracing a new design ethos where AI and human creativity coalesce to redefine the graphic design landscape. Whether you're a seasoned designer or a newcomer, this course equips you with the knowledge and skills to thrive in the AI-augmented world of graphic design.
