We are in the midst of a large shift in the relationship between ourselves and our tools. I have always been interested in Artificial Intelligence (AI), and how it can impact our lives; combine this with my interest in the design industry and you have my undergraduate thesis.
My thesis work in graphic design was a project I titled No. Brainer, an experimental web application (Web App) that aims to provide insights into the impact that AI or Machine Learning (ML) could have on the practice of graphic designers. A misguided many, believe that automation could replace designers and become a threat to the industry. However, my perspective is more of cautious optimism; with No. Brainer, my hope was to reframe this future technology as an essential tool for design ideation. Instead of replacing designers, it supports them by providing ideas we could never think of.
