Show Transcription

[00:00:00] Cheryl: Welcome to Women of the Metaverse. I am Cheryl Laidlaw

[00:00:08] Angela: I am Angela Harkness. We have been and are still on a journey to discover the Metaverse with 3.0 NFTs and anything that we are required to know to join this world 

[00:00:20] Cheryl: from. From this podcast, we will help you to unlock how the metaverse is going to impact your brand.

[00:00:27] Cheryl: Your business and even your personal life. 

[00:00:31] Angela: Join us as we take the mystery out of this new digital universe. 

[00:00:38] Cheryl: Welcome to Women of the Metaverse. In this episode, we are talking about how will Web three change web design. As a web designer, this is such an important episode, not only for me, but for you two as a business lo owner, and.

[00:00:56] Cheryl: I recently built a website in [00:01:00] 30 seconds using an AI software called Durable. So if you bought website and a day was impressive, try a website in 30 seconds. This was scary, wasn’t it Angela? Because I stepped it to you straight away and said, I think my life is over. . 

[00:01:20] Angela: Yes. But then you have to sit back and think about how this.

[00:01:25] Angela: Gonna help you too, right? Absolutely. 

[00:01:29] Cheryl: Now, I did panic when I saw it, but then relaxed when I saw the results. The website you produced was well structured, but the design was a bit basic. So if you are starting out in business, this tool is perfect to get you up and running. I would say that it’s going to replace web builders such as Wick and Squarespace.

[00:01:53] Cheryl: And for now, bespoke websites will remain a luxury, but who knows how advanced this feature will [00:02:00] get? I will definitely be keeping an eye on this. What I am predicting as we go into 2023 is that web design will change massively as we start all to use these image AI software. Now we’ve all seen them, these amazing profile images all over our social media made from ai, but it’s time we go even further.

[00:02:27] Cheryl: Angela, you’ve been having a play with AI lately. What do you make of it and how do you see it being used for websites? This is 

[00:02:36] Angela: interesting cuz we actually had a bit of a chat backwards and forward. So like text convers. because we had both been playing with Mid Journey, which is an image tool creation, and some of the images it creates is just, they’re just incredible.

[00:02:51] Angela: Mm-hmm. and they’ve got real debt to them. And we were having a conversation about redoing my website, [00:03:00] saying that we could maybe try to do it in AI because you need somebody that’s skilled like Cheryl, who understands brand and websites and what works and what doesn’t. , what’s this AI tool I think could give you or do to my website is Add real?

[00:03:18] Angela: I dunno how else to say it other than debt. Debt. 

[00:03:20] Cheryl: The images. Yes. I was just about to say that. Debt, yes. 

[00:03:23] Angela: The images just seem to have this kind of debt to them that’s quite incredible and I was just imagining what my website could look like using this kind of imagery. I think you could make it look quite incredible.

[00:03:39] Angela: I think you have to be bold, but I think you, I think it could really look quite incredible. So like, it’s almost, it’s like real world, isn’t it? The like the colors are so vibrant Yeah. That you like struggle to get on, say a word press or anything else, they, it’s just by, you just 

[00:03:58] Cheryl: can’t get that from Shutterstock [00:04:00] or iStock

[00:04:00] Angela: No, no. It’s so, it was, it’s really, so my imagination about what you could do is going crazy. , but then it would need somebody’s skilled to kind of, not reign it in, but go, right, this works for branding. This doesn’t, you need this because you could go mad with it and you, you know, have all sorts of rubbish all over the place and you need to bring it in together into sort of a brand that makes sense to people.

[00:04:25] Angela: Right? Yeah, 

[00:04:26] Cheryl: definitely. So, I mean, we discussed it only yesterday, maybe the day before, about how we could. Website that’s just completely AI image, um, based and I think it would look absolutely beautiful. So watch this space guys and see if what we can turn Angela’s website into the next few months. Yes.

[00:04:48] Cheryl: So also, what other elements will 

[00:04:50] Angela: change? Okay. So decentralized is still a word that’s used within any everyth. . [00:05:00] So one of the key benefits of Web three is that it allows for the creation of decentralized websites and web applications. This has come up in so many episodes. The advantages are that you or your designer are not controlled by any single entity.

[00:05:17] Angela: This means that there is more freedom to create unique and innovative experiences without having to conform to the constraints of traditional. Platforms such as WordPress, were revolutionary when they released, were released, but you were only able to develop your websites as fast as the platform developed.

[00:05:38] Angela: And Web three and decentralization removes so many boundaries when talking about design. Um, another one, again, I think we must mention this in every single episode, tokenization. We are so excited about tokenization for small businesses and those that leverage Web three [00:06:00] technology will allow for tokenization, which means that some assets on your website can be tokenized, ownership can be tracked, and among other features will give designers the ability to create new types of interaction experiences that weren’t possible.

[00:06:19] Angela: and the advantage for you is it will open up a whole world of created options to bring income into your business and help to build a loyal community. Security, always a massive one. Mm-hmm. your websites. Yeah. Massively. Always The real problem if your website gets hacked, even just the, the, um, like the comments and the back links and the trolling.

[00:06:41] Angela: The spam. The spam, yeah. Oh, that drives me. Web three is more secure than traditional web because of the underlying technology blockchain, this will make it more difficult for hackers to steal sensitive information, and designers will have to take into account new best practices to [00:07:00] create more secure user experiences, smart contracts, and another brilliant one, smart.

[00:07:09] Angela: Our self-executing contracts, which with the terms of agreement dial directly written into the code Smart contract integration will allow for more automated interactions and transactions between users and designers. Will need to create user interfaces that make it easy. a user to interact with those smart contracts.

[00:07:30] Angela: That’s a good one. Yeah, it is a good one because it can really, you can really nail down like anything you want within those terms and con in terms and conditions. Mm-hmm. accessibility. The decentralized nature of Web three also means that websites will be less likely to be censored or blocked by governments or other entities.

[00:07:53] Angela: This will make it more possible for designers to create websites and applications that are accessible to more people around the world, [00:08:00] regardless of their location or access to traditional internet. So there’s a lot more to it than just the actual design. Mm-hmm. , there’s a lot. Mm-hmm. in the background that your website is gonna be able to do that it could never do before.

[00:08:14] Angela: Yeah. 

[00:08:14] Cheryl: Rather than, I mean, there was a lot of, there was a lot of scaremongering that websites would be, Exempt, you know, we wouldn’t need them anymore cause we’re gonna have this 3D world, but we are still using Web one. We are still using web two. And as we move into web three, you know, they’re not, they’re not gonna go anywhere because of just the ease on and how it’s been built.

[00:08:38] Cheryl: Um, and not, as we all know, not everyone adopts new technology straight away either. No. So it’s definitely gonna evolve massively. 

[00:08:48] Angela: Now be step by step, won’t it? Cuz it won’t be sort of all in. So say for example, if we do my website, we’re not gonna go all in with all of this technology. We’re gonna start with [00:09:00] design and then it will, it will grow and evolve over time.

[00:09:04] Angela: But I think what the web three enables is for you to. Create this first step into a new world for your clients. 

[00:09:14] Cheryl: Yeah. Whether that be just adding something as simple as a wallet to your website so that people could connect, um, or going a little bit more advanced by adding say something like voice control.

[00:09:28] Angela: Yeah. Or even if you, even if you have a big client list or you have very sensitive clients. So Cheryl works a lot with. Doctors and you know, people in that kind of medical field where their data’s very sensitive. So even if you start to use blockchain technology, then that, that adds that level of security to your, that your data that you have Definitely.

[00:09:52] Cheryl: So voice. Going back to voice control. I do feel that it needs to be a little bit more prominent in the [00:10:00] web three arena as we moved. Yeah, that’s a good one. Moved through. I mean, I dunno about you, but I speak to Alexa quite a lot in my life. 

[00:10:08] Angela: Yeah. And also I noticed yesterday that Apple released their new pods, their next generation of pods.

[00:10:14] Angela: Ah. So there is this war going on now with the voice generated. Okay. Applications as 

[00:10:20] Cheryl: well. I mean, it’s great if only she could understand me a little bit more. Yeah. 

[00:10:26] Angela: or not Go on. I need to change its name I think cuz sometimes it just pops. I was told 

[00:10:33] Cheryl: actually that you should change Alexa’s name for as for a Secur Security Pro.

[00:10:37] Cheryl: Um, purposes, yes. So, um, if anyone wants to actually 

[00:10:41] Angela: go and do that, but also that’s, that’s a skill in itself, isn’t it, under learning that you could get so much more out of your voice control if you really learnt what the prompts are. Exactly. It someone about the prompts. Yeah, it’s all about the prompts.

[00:10:54] Angela: Maybe we’re talking, you listen to our. Episode about ai, then we talk about prompts a lot. 

[00:10:59] Cheryl: [00:11:00] Maybe 2023 will be about prompts a lot. 

[00:11:02] Angela: Yes, . 

[00:11:04] Cheryl: So I think websites as a whole will become easier to use, not just for the end user, but for web designers too. In the past we’ve had to know how to code, but as we move into this new AI world, creating tech will become a lot easier and.

[00:11:24] Cheryl: This also means that companies will need to change their business models to accommodate these changes. Businesses and organizations will need to update their websites to be consumer friendly and fair to everyone using them. It’s important to note that Web three is still relatively new and rapidly developing technology and its impact on web design is likely to evolve over time.

[00:11:51] Cheryl: However, it is clear that Web Three has the potential to bring significant change to the way websites are designed and [00:12:00] experienced.
