Embrace the AI-volution with curiousity

🌟 As a graphic design enthusiast, I had the incredible opportunity to attend hashtag#designthinkers conference in Toronto, thanks to the sponsorship from Association of Registered Graphic Designers (RGD) and Davis - Integrated Branding. I am happy to share some key takeaways, especially for graphic design professionals and students, from the enlightening keynote speakers who delved into the world of the AI-volution.

💡 Paul Trani Adobe's Principal Evangelist for Creative Cloud, reminded us that AI puts the world's content at our fingertips. The power of generative AI is a game-changer, allowing designers to explore new frontiers in concept development. But it's not without its challenges, often appearing futuristic and even a tad intimidating.

💡 Renato Fernandez, Chief Creative Officer at TBWA\CHIAT\DAY LA, took the stage with a dynamic keynote. He emphasized that creativity is in high demand and AI is redefining the way we approach a blank page. He mentioned that “Gen AI just raised the bar; we need to step up now”. We must replace fear with curiosity, and he echoed what I heard throughout the conference - being an early adopter is a wise move.

🚀 The key message I took home is that AI isn't here to replace us; it's here to empower us. With the right mindset, continuous learning, and an insatiable curiosity, we can harness the potential of AI to take our design careers to new heights.

🙌 Massive thank you to RGD, the sponsors, the speakers and volunteers for this incredible 2-day event. Let's keep pushing the boundaries of creativity and design together! Designers supporting designers.
