Designing with Intelligence is a graphic design workshop that took place in April 2023 supervised by the IED lecturer Giulia Gravina. Students from the graphic design courses of IED Milano learned the basics of generative artificial intelligence and developed their prompt engineering skills by generating first hand the contents of their publications. Every image was created using Midjourney and all text was generated by chatGPT, with human supervision and direction.
The fusion of human ingenuity and technological brilliance made these bizarre and creative projects possible.
