I wanted to show you guys some interesting chatbot designs I made a couple of days back. I was checking out an album of interesting pop art artwork and tried to use some of those images to make these designs. I think with a lively design like these, the conversation with the bot can be made a lot more interesting and personified. Check these:
What I did was, I started with an image that looked interesting and set it as Chat Background and then tried to pick 2-4 dominant colors from that image and tried a few combination of those colors as Bot message bubble, user message bubble and page body (for desktop view). And kept the one which looked best.
Depending on what the conversation is about, you have to start with a relevant image (with proper aspect ratio) and then follow similar steps to get the rest of the colors for the design. Overall I think this makes the Bot a lot more personified and personal, and users will likely give it more chance to say what it is trying to say.
It’s like putting on a nice set of clothes when meeting someone new, it won’t help you in improving your personality but it will give you more time to communicate your personality to others, since you are so easy and interesting to look at
Let me know what you think about this approach for coming up with a design theme.
PS: The conversations in these bots are just some random messages for testing.
