I was 17 years old when I started experimenting with website design. Day and night, I studied the limited tools available then and later delved into consumer psychology. I aimed to ensure that my designs were aesthetically pleasing, highly functional, and user-friendly.
My obvious dedication led to a realization that this it – the field that I want to focus on for the long-term. I was excited about all the stuff that I’m going to learn and implement, so potential clients would see the added value in my work, sparking their interest in cooperation.
However, I couldn’t have predicted the times that we are now facing. With the arrival of AI, everything has changed. Actually, the tools these days are so advanced that many designers are giving up, believing their efforts are futile because virtually anyone can create a compelling website now.
Considering all the no-code platforms readily available, this might seem true. But it’s far from easy. Actually, there are so many options now that people become overwhelmed and freeze, unsure of what action to take. This applies not only to design but to virtually everything. When the food was scarce, customers were happy with whatever they could get. Now, supermarkets overflow with options, many unheard of, leading to indecision about what to eat.
