Teacher Becomes Paid Designer Overnight Thanks to AI

An unlikely hero has emerged in the world of freelance design.

A history and computers teacher, Nir Gottlieb from Israel, with no previous experience in design, and who is colorblind to boot, has stumbled upon a new career as a freelance designer overnight.

After experimenting  with Midjourney’s version 4, the teacher was so impressed with their quality that they decided to conduct an experiment. Nir opened a gig on Fiverr, offering to use Midjourney to create high-quality visuals for marketing at prices ranging from $5 for one photo to $30 for a package of 12 photos.

To spread the word about their new gig, the teacher turned to ChatGPT for help writing a Facebook post about the transformative power of AI in the fields of design and marketing. 

The post was a hit, and within 24 hours the teacher had received his first client: a user named avsnj1974 who asked for a soap label with ingredient information.

Despite not having the ability to include a list of ingredients, the teacher was able to create a stunning illustration and sent it along as a free sample.

The client was impressed and paid the teacher $5 for their work. The next day, avsnj1974 returned with another order of a soap label at an additional $5 cost.

In just one hour of work over the course of two days, the teacher had made his first $10 as a freelance designer.

While Nir has no plans to leave his day job, He is excited to continue his new hobby as a freelancer and even hoping to now sell his premium 12-image package to avsnj1974.
