Regina Aguirre: Pioneering the Intersection of AI and Design with Vizcom
Oct 9, 2023
Regina Aguirre made history as the first student ambassador for Vizcom's EDU program. During her industrial design studies, Regina explored how artificial intelligence transforms the creative process. Her experiments with Vizcom led to groundbreaking visual work.
Regina's curiosity about AI's creative potential led her to tackle a pressing question facing designers today: how can emerging technologies like AI enrich human creativity rather than replace it? This dilemma prompted her exploration with Vizcom for her industrial design studies.
Through hands-on experimentation, Regina sought to understand how AI tools like Vizcom can enhance the design process. Her project aimed to document how artificial intelligence can lead designers to new visual possibilities.
Regina chose Vizcom for its collaborative approach that allows designers to steer the creative direction. With Vizcom, she could feed her initial sketches into the platform and then refine the AI-generated 3D models. This gave Regina an interactive role in the design iteration.
According to Regina, AI enables designers to "make thought visible." Rather than replicating human creativity, Vizcom's AI suggests new visual avenues and stimulates ideation. By removing repetitive work, it gives designers freedom to focus on the thoughtful, nuanced aspects of design.
Through this project, Regina explored how AI and human creativity can be the "perfect duo." Her research and documentation show how emerging tools like Vizcom can ultimately enhance designers' skills, rather than replace them.
Regina believes AI will be a collaborative force that propels design into the future. By embracing these technologies, she shows how the next generation of innovators can create their own unique paths and harness AI's potential.
