“If you design or build sites, apps, and games, this is a must attend event. The webinar from the five hour course – which is literally my entire career in UI design distilled into a single course. You won’t be disappointed.”
Superior user experience (UX), user interface (UI), and player experience (PX) design is what separates forgettable games at the bottom of the list from hit games that are best sellers.
Whether you’re designing a game, app, or website, experience is everything. Therefore, focusing only on creating a good game story or useful website or app isn’t enough to keep people engaged and wanting more. You need to create delightfully simple end-to-end experiences with gorgeous intuitive interfaces that are fun to use, provide value, build trust, and align business goals with user and player needs.
You need incredible UX, UI, and PX. And in this webinar, we’ll cover key UI design learnings that every designer needs to know if you want your games, apps or websites to be beautiful, easy-to-use, and successful in the market.
What topics are covered in the webinar and course?
- Organization, economy, communication
- Best practices
- Real world scenarios
- UX & UI patterns
- Layout, alignment, spacing & sizing
- Sketches, wireframes, mockups
- and a lot more!
・What’s the difference between the two screens?
・Only one thing has changed, can you spot the difference?
・Does one look better, cleaner, or sharper than the other?
If you think “B” looks more polished, you’d be right.
But do you know why?
Look at the images below.
Notice how the sizing and spacing in “A” (red) is all over the place. The sizing and spacing is inconsistent and is the common result of “eyeballing” size and space.
Now look at “B” (green). Do you see repeating numbers? Maybe even something deeper like the fact that all numbers are divisible by 16 or factors of 16. That’s because “B” uses a “special” base 16 sizing and spacing system. But why 16? And how does it scale?
This is one of the things that separates pros from amateurs.
