User Interface - Video Games
During my time at Bradley University and beyond, I have created user interface concepts, designs, and assets for a variety of game projects, of which I worked on with fellow students of varying other disciplines. At times, I worked with other UI/UX designers, whereas other times, I was the sole UI/UX Design Lead on the team. I have worked on areas of User Interface such as:
Main Menu & Sub Menu Designs/Navigations
Options & How to Play menus
In-game Shop & Customization Menus
Player Heads Up Display (HUD) for a variety of perspectives, such as third person & first person
In-game tutorial, context, and dialogue prompts/messages
Created custom font library to be used for in-game body font
Listed below are some of the games I worked on with teams of other game design students at Bradley University. Take a look!
Friendly Fire is a 3D, third-person perspective Platforming Adventure, in which you play a little fire sprite named Wick on an adventure within a large house.
I served as the Lead UI/UX Designer for this project and created most of the interface you see, however I also served as a concept artist, programmer, and level designer throughout the course of the project.
Neon Oblivion is a 3D, first-person perspective platforming puzzle game, that combines a medieval fantasy setting with a vaporwave/synthwave/retro 80's aesthetic.
I worked as the sole Lead UI/UX Designer among a large team of programmers, designers, and artists. In addition to the interface, I also undertook organizing playtest sessions with a variety of playtesters, in order to ensure a user-centered design approach.
Untouchable is a 3D, first-person perspective platforming endless-runner game, in which you (the player) rotate the environment before you as you go.
I worked as the UI/UX Designer, as well as a VFX artist, and programmer for this project. This project differs from the others in that it serves as a gameplay prototype, and as such was given much less time to be worked on for the class deadline.
Behemoth Break is a 2D, side-scrolling platforming/breakout-inspired game, in which a wizard must protect houses from a ruthless dragon lurking below his very feet.
For this game, I served as the game's UI/UX Designer as well as artist, as there were only three people on this project, myself included. The game features a one player or two player mode, the latter of which allows one player to be the wizard, and the other, the dragon.
