A fantastic workshop today with the amazingly talented German designer Ulrike Kerber whose new book on #AI Tools for Designers I highly recommend. If you're curious about experimenting with Gen AI Avatars and Video tools, skip the clickbait social media tutorials and sign up for one of her workshops. It is well worth it. Thanks Ulrike for an amazing afternoon.

Ulrike accomplishes this journey by weaving the manner of tools used, with suggestions for use, to obtain the best design results with AI interactions. Highly recommended!
