Pirates! Legends was another foray into working on games for the Chinese market. I’ve been working on a lot of projects for this region over the past 5 years and they’re always a lot of fun. I love a good design challenge and working on layouts to cater for different languages is always a great challenge to overcome. I mean lets be honest, far eastern languages look SO much more interesting than English anyway! I’d been working on a few games for 2K at the time and this one was Pirate themed! There must have been a real trend for Pirates at the time as this was one of 3 games that I was working on at the time all based around the Pirate theme. Great fun!
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!
