As a graphic designer, I’ve always been interested in finding new tools and techniques that can help me create better work for my clients. That’s why I was excited to discover Latent Diffusion image generation. Essentially, this is a way for computers to generate original images using a set of instructions, rather than just copying and pasting existing ones.
Now, I know what you might be thinking – “isn’t this just AI art? Won’t using Latent Diffusion take away from the human element of design?” It’s a valid concern, and one that’s been debated a lot in the design community. Some people argue that using AI in art reduces the value of the work, because it lacks a “soul” or personal touch.
But personally, I think that’s a bit short-sighted. While it’s true that Latent Diffusion won’t replace the need for human designers completely, I think it has the potential to be an incredible tool in our creative arsenal. At Coalbanks Creative, we’ve started using Latent Diffusion to generate mood boards and early concept designs. This has saved us a ton of time and effort, because we no longer have to spend hours searching the web for the perfect images to match our clients’ vision. Instead, we can let the computer do the work for us, and then use our own creativity and skill to refine the designs.
There are also legal considerations to keep in mind when using Latent Diffusion. As with any art or design work, it’s important to make sure you have the right to use the images that are generated. But in my experience, as long as you’re transparent with your clients about how you’re using the tool, and you make sure to get permission when necessary, there shouldn’t be any issues.
Overall, I think Latent Diffusion and AI art have the potential to revolutionize the creative industry. While they won’t replace human designers completely, they can certainly make our jobs easier and more efficient.
