60+ AI Prompts for UX Designers

Examples for ChatGPT, Claude, Gemini and other LLMs

AI has become an increasingly valuable tool for professionals across various industries, including UX design. As designers strive to create intuitive, user-friendly experiences, AI-powered tools can help streamline the design process, spark creativity, and provide valuable insights.

In this article, we’ll explore prompts UX designers can use with tools like ChatGPT, Claude and Gemini. We will provide examples of effective prompts for various stages of the UX design process, and offer tips on how to integrate these prompts into your workflow.

Should you use ChatGPT, Claude, Gemini or something else?

While ChatGPT is one of the most popular AI assistants available, there are multiple chat AI applications available now. Each is powered by a different LLM and each has their own unique strengths and weaknesses.

We’ve written a more in depth article about different LLMs here, but at the time of writing this article, we tend to use Claude and ChatGPT.

That said, the AI space is moving so fast that today’s best could be tomorrow’s worst, so we recommend testing your prompts across different platforms and using the one that gives you the best result for your specific task today.

Throughout this article we’ll use ChatGPT, Claude and Gemini interchangeably, but just know that these prompts can be used with any LLM.

ChatGPT prompts for user research and analysis

User research and analysis are crucial components of the UX design process, as they help designers gain a deep understanding of their target audience, their needs, behaviors, and preferences. AI prompts can be particularly useful in this stage of the design process, helping designers to structure their research efforts, uncover valuable insights, and identify areas for improvement.

Example prompts:

Based on the user data provided, what are the key demographic characteristics of our target audience, and how might these characteristics influence their needs and preferences?

Analyze the user feedback from our latest survey and identify the top three pain points or challenges that users are experiencing with our current design.

Given the user journey map, what are the critical moments of truth where users are most likely to encounter friction or abandon the process altogether?

How to integrate AI into your design workflow

Use the website for ChatGPT, Claude or Gemini

You can use ChatGPT, Claude or Gemini directly through their websites. You’ll typically have to create an account and you’ll get instant access to a free version of one of their LLMs, but if you want a more advanced LLM, you’ll have to pay. For example, right now OpenAI offers GPT3.5 for free, but you can pay to upgrade to GPT4.

We’ve found this option is best for individuals who only need to use one platform and only need to use it by themselves.

If that’s you, then you can also use PromptDrive.ai as your prompt management tool. We have an unlimited free plan for individual users and a free chrome extension that will allow you to access your entire prompt library without the need to switch between tabs.

But if you want to save money, use different LLMs and collaborate on prompts and chat responses, then you might benefit from using PromptDrive.

Use PromptDrive.ai

PromptDrive.ai is a platform designed specifically for teams to collaborate on ChatGPT, Claude and Gemini prompts and workflows. It’s particularly useful for businesses or organizations where multiple team members need to work together on projects involving one or more LLMs.
