This was a superb UI design project! Lightmark is a 3D benchmark app to test out the power of your mobile device, so the visuals I got to work with were breathtaking! The brief was to create a clean, slick UI that would sit naturally against the intense and highly complex visuals of the benchmark test.
I wanted to inject a strong sci-fi angle in this design to compliment the engine graphics but not one that would detract or clash with the complexity of the art, so a fine balance was struck between technical, futuristic and clean. The end result was one I was really, really pleased with. If you’ve got a high end Android device, set this baby to work, it’ll push that graphics processor to it limits!
UI or user interface design as it’s properly known, has become incredibly important with the growth of interactive media. In one way or another people are interacting with devices in almost every part of their everyday lives and making that easier is always key. Games, apps, programs, website’s, they’re all of equal importance. For a UI solution to work its best it has to be underpinned with fully thought out UX design and only then can both work in harmony. I always aim to ensure that every UI design I create serves the user in the best possible way whilst at the same time looking great!
