AI has been a huge part of the web design industry conversation—so it’s natural to be a little AI curious, if not full-on obsessed.


Still, you might be unsure how to use AI design tools in your day-to-day work. If you want to know how to streamline your web design process, but you’re not sure which specific tools you should use, you’ve come to the right place. 


We’ll review AI web design tools that will help you design a client website from start to finish, including ideation, text and image generation, and breakpoint adaptations. 


AI that transforms how agencies work

What is an AI web design tool? 


An AI web design tool is software that leverages artificial intelligence algorithms to assist in the creation and optimization of websites. These tools can automate various aspects of the design process, such as layout generation, color selection, content suggestions, and even user experience optimization, in order to make website creation faster and more efficient.



Features of good AI web design tools


There aren’t any catch-all rules for AI tools (since they all have different functionalities), but there are best practices. “Good” web design tools typically have intuitive and user-friendly interfaces, deep customization options, collaboration features, integration with other tools, and a rich collection of support documentation. Some also have drag-and-drop functionality, analytics and tracking, and pre-planned templates and themes.



How is AI used in web design?


AI tools can help web creators enhance various design and development activities.


  • Generating layout design ideas: AI tools can act as visual assistants for web professionals and generate visual ideas based on specified criteria. 


  • Finding color and font combinations: AI tools can suggest color schemes and font pairings that will help create an aesthetically pleasing design. 


  • Generating images and illustrations: AI tools can generate photos, illustrations and graphic patterns for your design


  • Automating content creation: You no longer need to use Lorem Ipsum text if you don't want to. AI tools generate content, such as product descriptions, blog posts, social media updates and video content, saving time and effort for content creators.


  • Conducting predictive analysis: AI can predict the success of design variations, allowing designers to create layouts that will perform better for users.

Website builders with AI capabilities


Website builders powered by AI give users a new, more efficient way of designing and building sites.



Wix is a pioneer in the field of AI. We launched our first AI website generator, Artificial Design Intelligence (ADI), back in 2016, which revolutionized the way of building basic websites. Now, there's Wix Studio, which features next-level AI tools, such as Responsive AI (analyzes your design and creates the most optimal layout design across all breakpoints), AI code assistant (offers code suggestions in real-time), AI text-to-image generator, and AI image enhancer that help web professionals work more efficiently. 


Value proposition: AI tools are nicely integrated into the web design workflow. Need to create a responsive layout? Generate a new image? Remove the background from the image? Generate SEO tags? Wix Studio will help you with that.


Plus, there are tons of no-code/low-code design features you can easily bring to life like scroll effects, hover animations, custom cursors and text masks. And when you want to take the reins to create something from scratch, Wix Studio lets you add custom CSS, create bespoke widgets and leverage its powerful CMS. The opportunities are really endless. 


Best practices for using Wix Studio:


  • Ensure your website looks good on mobile devices. Wix Studio automatically generates a mobile version of your site, but it's essential to review and adjust the design as needed. For example, you might want to change the order of some sections on mobile to maximize effectiveness. 

  • Explore existing business solutions that Wix Studio offers such as eCommerce, Bookings and CRM. Wix Studio offers full-stack business solutions for any client, so you don't need to start from scratch.

  • Take a moment and consider the apps and widgets you most commonly build for your clients’ sites on repeat. Build these once in Wix Blocks and they become reusable, responsive, adjustable components you can add to all your Wix Studio sites.

  • Leverage all the client-facing features – like content edit controls and a handover kit – to give your clients the best experience and to set them up for success.


Be sure to check out: the Smart AI toolset that Wix Studio offers. AI tools can help with various tasks—from creating layouts and generating images to writing code.


Free plan: No.


Pricing: starts at $16/month for the Standard plan.
