The brief on this project was extremely limited, as the site had to portray a message that was HEAVILY protected by an NDA and even I wasn't allowed full access to the information that all this was based on. So needless to say, this was as exciting as it was extremely challenging...but if you know me, you know I love a damn good challenge!
As I'd only been given light hints as to the what this site had to portray, it was a case of going away and working almost blindly, and sending the design back for feedback to see if I was hitting the target. Luckily, I was very close first time, so with a handful of amends we actually landed on the final design quite quickly. I'm so intrigued by the game that their working on (tipped to be Microsoft's next big franchise since Halo) as from the tip bits of info I got, it was sounding very, very exciting indeed!
Well, I love new challenges, and creating the UI for the worlds most popular farming simulator certainly ticked that box. This project was an absolute joy!
One of my favourite parts of the Sonica package, the castle...oooooooh spooky! This formed a large part of the story and was used as the end of level challenge!
