An ongoing program conclusion thesis project which investigates the potential of using machine learning as a tool in graphic design. Currently, the idea of artificial intelligence taking jobs is a heavily debated topic. We wonder how the creative industries will be affected by new AI technologies and how designers will adapt to these advancements. Through extensive research and my own design process I came to the conclusion that a machine cannot replace human creativity. The machine can be a helpful tool, but it is the designer that creates significance visually. Using the coding language Python, I trained an artificial intelligence machine based on an input of 700 different typefaces to generate new letterforms. Taking advantage of the machine error in the letterforms, I've been working on using them in compelling visual imagery and compositions.
