Gaudí was developed to help designers search for inspirational images using natural language. In the early stages of the design process, designers will typically create thematic image collections called “mood-boards” in order to elicit and clarify a client’s preferred creative direction. Creating a mood-board involves sequential image searches which are currently performed using keywords or images. Gaudí transforms this process into a conversation where the user is gradually detailing the mood-board’s theme. This representation allows our AI to generate new search queries from scratch, straight from a project’s briefing, following a hypothesized mood.
