AI can be confusing. And biased. And ugly as f***. 

My workshops help you to become better with Gen AI – based on visual competence and a designers perspective.



Forget the AI Marketing bros with their one-size-fits-all solutions and a visual sensitivity of a teaspoon. The world doesn’t need more ugly and sexist AI imagery or another bland ChatGPT Cheat Sheat. It needs people who are building up AI literacy. Creatives using these tools responsible, with curiosity, contextual and visual competence – and a criticial eye.

I’m here to show you how to navigate the brave new world of Gen AI with style, providing you with tips, tricks, and design-based frameworks and exercises that won't just make your work better, but might just save our visual landscape from the AI apocalypse. 

As an art director and designer I understand the needs of people in the creative industries. A theoretical base understanding about functionality, possibilities, limitations and legal & ethical pitfalls of the AI technology are important. And so is the practical knowledge about different AI models, prompt structures and parameters. It’s about time to bring the craft of design into the new tools. I can’t wait to get you prompting.
