AI image generation using text prompts has a lot of potential even outside of illustration work. In its infancy, it's already a big hit, but it really has potential to become something that takes over every aspect of our lives. Someone's AI generated art even won a graphical art contest that's become a big discussion topic.
Web design is something I'm personally interested in. I wanted to try generating web page concepts with Midjourney. Here are some designs it came up with and what my opinions are. Overall, I'm very impressed. The scary part is it will only get better from here.
This is a generic web homepage that you might get back from a standard template editor. Midjourney's talents really lie on generating background art on the page. There's some concept of arranging text with a big "WEB" header with some neatly organized links underneath it. Midjourney was also able to add a header bar and footer.
In this design, although there's an awkward bar placement and questionable text arrangement, Midjourney's impressive illustration skills are on full display. There's a small header bar at the very top that's not necessary, but Midjourney adds a cool, curious black section to presumably hold navigation controls. Every element is nicely color-coordinated.
This is a really impressive design and I can see it being used for a page showcasing multiple products. It sections off a page into four different blocks, but ties everything together with similar colors and a single bar element at the bottom.
Really cool arrangement with Asian design elements. I particularly like what Midjourney did with the bottom section. It could potentially be expanded to showcase a company's products and offerings.
This was the first web design I generated using Midjourney. I was instantly amazed at how emotional the artwork could be. Some awkward color arrangements, but this is just the beginning in terms of AI generated designs.
I'm updating this page to add some more webpage mockups. Here are ten more beautiful designs to check out below.
I truly appreciate that you reached the end. Here are some products that I recommend as a web developer. I only recommend high quality products:
