Project Galaxia

The brief:

The brief couldn’t have been better, and I mean that! When I was told about the back story to the game, and that it was going to be set in space, in a SciFi universe, I almost immediately knew how this had to look, my vision popped into mind within seconds! Creating interfaces and HUD’s for games is pretty much my favourite type of work these days, especially for iPhone games, there’s something really fun about designing for this cool little device!

The solution:

I soon set to work on the branding and homescreen interface, trying create that classic futuristic yet battered and aged effect, something to show that this wasn’t ‘shiny scifi’ but gritty scifi! So there were lots of 45 degree angles, glowing lights, aged metals, you name it...I was in heaven! While I didn’t design every screen within the app, I did design the majority, and each one was a real challenge. Trying to fit all the features that you would normally have spread over a large computer monitor into the small 320x480 iPhone screen space was epically challenging, but boy was it fun! I love a good challenge. Needless to say, the project came together really well and was very warmly received by Codxp. I wish them lots of luck with the project!

Black Jacket Studios

As I absolutely love the creative direction of Black Jacket Studios first game, Metal Drift, I was really excited to create a brand that would slot into this feel. Very much my cup of tea!

As a HUGE fan, user and lover of MAME it was about time that I gave something back to the community of MAME users. So this was my yearly community piece.
