Discover your imagination — Midjourney search engine.
NightBloom is a personal project I’ve recently built after recognizing how difficult it is to search Midjourney images.

AI tools are taking the world by storm, and naturally, people are gravitating towards image creation solutions like Midjourney and Dalle-2, looking for interesting ways to unleash their creativity.
For businesses of all sizes, a unique opportunity has been discovered — high-quality, customized images can be created with a few simple prompts. This is quick and cost-effective, and thus, appealing.
Of the AI image generators currently in the market, Midjourney has emerged as a clear leader in generating high-quality imagery.
However, users have expressed frustration with Midjourney’s search engine that accompanies their image generation tool.
NightBloom seeks to offer users the ability to search Midjourney’s rich image catalog by using keywords.
Our sophisticated search engine will generate imagery based on keyword input, ensuring the user is provided with the images they are seeking.
Furthermore, NightBloom will offer users ‘Style Guides’, allowing users to kickstart their search without too much thought.
Key features include the following:
Leveraging Material v3, all surfaces and components have elevation. To communicate elevation, color is used, instead of shadows.
Coral gradients have been used to accentuate CTAs, drawing attention to important elements for user interaction.
Careful consideration has been given to accessibility — button sizing, component spacing, and icon sizing have been delivered according to material v3 guidelines.
We built the application using RUST — Superior memory management was a driving factor.
