Dalle 3 Prompts

Dalle 3 Prompts: Getting Started with DALL-E-3 Prompts For Designers

by Michael Essek   ·   Updated: October 6, 2023

Dalle 3 (or, to give it’s proper title and branding: DALL-E-3) is an incredible tool for visual brainstorming and concept generation for designers.

Like all text-to-image AI tools – Dalle 3 requires the right type of prompt to return the best results – and Dalle 3 Prompts are no different.

In this article I’ll share some of the best DALL-E-3 Prompts I’ve found so far, so you can use and experiment with them to help you brainstorm new and original designs.

Note: I wouldn’t recommend you take outputs directly from DALL-E-3 (or any AI) and use it in a final design or product – but it is very handy for brainstorming layouts, colours, font choices, etc.

But fun as it is – as you’ll soon see – Dalle is no replacement for a flesh and blood artist, illustrator or designer.

1. Atari Video Game

Dalle 3 has an interesting relationship with brand names, trademark and celebrity names. However, this ‘Atari’ prompt didn’t seem to cause any issues.

Here’s the Dalle 3 prompt:

…as you can see, very little of what you’ll get from these prompts is 100% there.

Instead these are great ‘jumping off points’ for you (the designer) to modify, tweak and improve into a final product.

But for the best results – you need to have great, original ideas.
