Josephine Miller – AR Artist As a Freelance Art Director and XR/3D Artist, Josephine is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of creativity through experimentation with cutting-edge technology. Recently, she has been utilizing AI to bring her conceptualization and moodboard generation for digital fashion to new heights – predominately experimenting with Open AI, Midjourney, Runway, EBsynth and Stable Diffusion in any new workflow. She states “AI has significantly accelerated my design process by allowing me to quickly and accurately generate multiple iterations. This has massively reduced the time it takes me to arrive at the final design, almost cutting the conceptual phase in half. The result is a more precise and efficient workflow.” Her aim is to inspire others by making an impact to improve the relationship between human and technology though creating purposeful designs.
