Ripping Off Netflix

Monday, August 15th, 2022

There's now about 150 prompts on PromptBase, and it had got to the point where it was becoming actually hard to find a prompt.

Basically, every prompt just appeared in one big list, which was quite overwhelming and bad user experience.

So, this weekend I went through every prompt and added tags to them, e.g. #3d #logos #icons. Then, I built these horizontally scrolling prompt collections, and used them to house categories.

I took a lot of inspiration from the Netflix homepage, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Tagging also lets me do cool things like, if a user is viewing a prompt relating to #cute #2d #robots, suggesting other similar prompts below it.

I think these categories also makes it a bit clearer with what I'm going for with PromptBase. I think the most exciting thing about prompts is they have utility (e.g. generating quality website icons), as apposed to just being about generating art like "Homer Simpson on a beach in watercolour".

Anyway, back to photoshop.
