What color palette should I use ? Let’s see .Let’s see what our friends here can do . So when designing a brand for an architecture firm , it’s important to choose color palette that is professional , sophisticated and reflects the company’s values and aesthetic .One approach is to use neutral color palette that is based on neutral materials such as stone wood and this can create a timeless classic a look that is associated with stability . For example , palette of grays be and taus I don’t even know what that means can create a sophisticated and understated look .


Another approach is to use bold and modern color palette to reflect the company’s forwards thinking and innovative design approach . Do you see this guy literally gives you ideas for mood boards , including the callers and also it’s giving you the word and uh you know , reasoning for you to communicate to your clients . Why you have chosen this color palette ?

I cannot tell you how long when I’ve been doing branding projects for clients , I’ve been breaking my head trying to figure out uh uh you know , a nice way of saying and of course , I gave him a really short prompt , not saying too much .But if you are actually working with clients , you can give more information and that will help them craft the measure that sounds good and that can resonate with the company . So this is literally can help you do your job at a higher quality at a fraction of the speed .


This is amazing .Let’s think about web design . Let’s say I’m designing uh a website for an app and I’m not sure what kind of image I should be using in the Hero section .So let’s test that .Uh I’m designing , designing , oh my God , I typos , I’m designing uh a website for a SAS company , set this software as a service SASS company doing a weather app .

And I need an idea for the image to use use in the Hero section . Give it to me .All right .One idea for the hero section of a Weather of a website of a weather app could be to use an image of a person looking at the sky and checking the app on their phone .This image could be set against the background of a beautiful clear sky to create the sense of anticipation and excitement about the weather . The image could also include some visual elements as to suggest the apps feature such as weather icons or a map for the user’s location .


Another idea could be to use an image of a person enjoying an outdoor activity , such as hiking , surfing , gardening , while using the app to check the weather . This could create a sense of adventure and possibility and showcase the app’s ability to help users plan and enjoy their favorite activities .


Using ChatGPT for coding

The image could be set against a back up of a natural stunning scenery such as a mountain range , a beach or a garden to create a sense of connection .This is amazing . Do you see already ? You have ideas ?

This is incredible. Lastly , it can actually help you write code .


So let’s say you’re using webflow to build your website and you want to do something that requires some custom code .Let’s say a feature that webflow doesn’t have at the moment , let’s say outline text .So let me say I’m uh I want to create a text outline effect on my webflow website . Uh I need help with , with custom code .

Please help me and let’s see to create a text outline effect on a web flow website , you need to use custom CS S . Here’s an example of how you can do this in the webflow project .

In your web flow projects , select the text element , you want to add outline , to give them a class , you can call it text outline .And then in the CS S code editor , you need to add the following text outline class .
