The stories we used to read and watch in our childhood are coming true! AI is taking over the World. But not in the way you might think. We are still safe from AI Robot Apocalypse (I hope so). However, AI models have significantly improved and can generate incredible accurate outputs if given the right prompts (instructions). This has opened a wide range of opportunities for everyone in the creative field.
But with all the advancements, an important question arises…
Will AI replace Web Designers?
Did you know that when Canva was launched, graphic designers feared that they would be replaced. But the opposite happened and Canva empowered more people to work as designers without having to master difficult and expensive tools
So, to answer the question, NO! AI will not replace Web Designers. However, Web Designers who utilize AI will likely replace those who do not. Afterall, AI empowers us and makes many tasks easier and faster.
Therefore, in this article we will discuss 10 Best AI tools that Web Designers should use in 2024.
