Choosing UI (User Interface) elements

Here at Rocketbox UI (user interface design) is massive part of our product design. Ensuring the design focuses on the anticipated needs of the user and facilitate a great experience for all.

We have been working on a touchscreen game system, aimed at all ages with a very specific educational mission. Accuracy of information on the interface is incredibly important as well as considering game speed and easy recognition of those important elements crucial to a great experience and game play.

Here is a snapshot animation made up of 10 individual hand drawn frames of one of the many small animated gifs.  The graphic is consistent with the look and feel of the game also the colour plays an important role being easily identifiable. This icon is user controlled so quick recognition and communication of exactly its purpose is crucial – clear indication of direction is also important to gameplay.
