My profession as a (UX/UI) designer evolved over time, as did the technologies and tools I use in my practice. It started back in the days with a lot of HTML/CSS, switched to graphic design software like Photoshop, then to Sketch and now with browser-based and collaborative tools like Figma.
Regardless of the tool, many of my tasks were repetitive and time-consuming. As a result, I’ve begun to look into AI-powered tools to make my design process easier and more fun.

Taking the right decisions in a design project can be challenging, no matter your experience. For most design dilemmas, there is someone who already had the same problem you are facing and found a solution.
In 2021, trends are showing us that we should collaborate more and more with each other, get more comfortable to work with design systems and simplify the UX/UI process to get better outcomes (read more about design trends in 2021 here and here).
All resources below are listed because at one point or another they served as inspiration and I’ve used them in my day…

Taking into account the user experience of your solution is as essential to success as your model’s performance. If it doesn’t align with human needs and mental models, your system will be a piece of intricate engineering with little to no real-life value.

In between sipping oat lattes and walking through a Python script, we sat down with Nadia in her living room in Amsterdam for the first of our Member Highlight. We caught up with what she’s up to, her journey into AI x Design, and her thoughts on AI products and capabilities. Read the interview below and tune in to our conversation.
Hi Nadia! What are you doing at the moment?
I’ve just quit as a design researcher at Bit and started my master’s in Data-Driven Design. Besides that, I am building the AI x Design community and working on some…

Speculative Design is based on critical thinking and dialogue. Like its name, this form of design supports a theory or hypothesizes about a topic without firm evidence. Speculative Design, in its broad range, can be used to design future products or systems. …
2020 is a weird year, let’s all face it. Everyone I’ve recently talked to changed their work routine & toolkit — and that’s not a bad thing. People started looking for tools that are more remote-friendly, collaborative, and with good UX — standards got high. And considering the context, it’s normal to start going on a budget (you know why), so there is room for alternatives.
Taking into account all of those, let me share with you my take on what tools to use to increase your productivity in the UI/UX process this year, to complement your favourite prototyping tool.
Critique is full of subtlety. Design critique is often no different. Giving design feedback requires a detailed analysis, and it can quickly turn into an unpleasant experience when the process is not properly defined, or if it becomes too subjective.
When working in teams during a product design process, open feedback is essential for a healthy development of the product. However, sharing unfinished work is naturally uncomfortable (especially for the designer) and often generates tension. If you’re working remote, communication skills are essential as you often have to prepare presentations and receive feedback without face-to-face understanding.
From my experience, I…
In this post we will give you the inside scoop on what the AI x Design community is about, what (we think) AIxDesign means, and what you missed out on during our #1 community meetup.
In September 2019, Nadia released her AI meets Design toolkit. If you haven’t come across it before, it’s free to download and a great place to start if you seek to design with & for machine intelligence.
This toolkit and the research that preceded it was the seed of how everything started and a community started to take shape.
