Call it recency bias, but our /PROMPT summit this December was a clear favorite among creatives and marketers alike.


With speakers from Microsoft, Jasper, Figma, Wistia and more, /PROMPT: Drive Creative Performance With Artificial Intelligence was the kick in the pants we all needed to start using AI practically in design and marketing.


You can watch the recorded sessions below, if you haven't already. We guarantee you'll learn something that'll make your work with AI (and your work in general) easier.

WINNER: Beyond the Brief: A Dazzling TikTok Campaign πŸ†


A campaign that increases TikTok views by 5,124% in three weeks is worth picking apart.

WINNER: Day In The Life Of A Graphic Designer πŸ†


Being "creative" for a living has its perks. But we'd be remiss to pretend a lot of it isn't spent on tasks that are less inspiring. Boring, even.


In fact, with the amount of creative most designers need to pull together on a weekly basis, and the amount of marketing feedback on said creative (πŸ˜…), you could excuse a designer for not always *loving* life.


Creatives: If you want to feel seen today, give this one a watch.

WINNER: Design Leadership Quiz πŸ†


This ain't your average "Which Hogwarts House Are You"-style Facebook quiz.


This is a painstakingly built, methodical examination into your very character as a design leader (or potential leader). The answers are inarguable.


Try to get "Cosmic Creative," it's the coolest one.
