How to use ChatGPT Ethically in your Graphic Design Work
What’s is ChatGPT?
You will have heard of ChatGPT by now, if you haven’t used it yet, or have, you may be wondering how can I use this in my design workflow?
What is it anyway? ChatGPT is a large language model trained by OpenAI, and it’s an incredible tool for generating ideas, brainstorming, and even providing design tips and tricks.
Many creatives are looking at using Ai to help with their idea generation process. You may consider turning to ChatGPT for some assistance, but first, it’s important to get clear on how to use the tool both ethically and legally.
First and foremost, ChatGPT should never be used to plagiarise or steal someone else’s work. We’re graphic designers (and design students) and we understand the importance of originality and respecting the work of others. ChatGPT can be a helpful tool for generating new ideas, but it should never be used to copy someone else’s work.
How can we use the tool responsibly?
Our first suggestion is to use the tool as a source for inspiration. We touched upon this in our AI & Graphic Design Video Series. You can input a few keywords related to your project, and ChatGPT can generate new ideas and perspectives for you to consider. It’s important to remember that these ideas are not meant to be copied or replicated but rather used as inspiration to create something new and unique.
Another way to use ChatGPT is to generate text for design briefs or proposals. You can input your project specifications, and ChatGPT can generate a paragraph or even an entire article on the topic. This can be incredibly helpful when you need to write a design brief or proposal. Again we show you a live example of this in our Video entitled AI & Graphic Design: Client Work.
Lastly, ChatGPT can be used for design tasks such as colour selection or layout design. You can ask ChatGPT to provide you with colour palettes suggestions or suggest layouts based on your project specifications. This can be an awesome starting point for your design and totally ethical!
Once again, remember that these suggestions are not meant to be copied or replicated but rather to be used as a starting point for your own original designs.
