LEARNING

For this project I researched five popular titles in the sci-fi genre. I analyzed and compared their similarities and differences, then created crafted a theme and style for a new mock IP. I designed wire-frames for four screens and a HUD based off of the new theme. 

PROJECT OVERVIEW

After researching, I decided to use a white on semi-transparent black theme give the UI

a slick sci-fi feel without making it distracting from the (placeholder) artwork. I selected a font that was thematic but readable, and chose to use all caps as the in-game technology felt like it would also use all caps.
