Designing a store and app icon is really difficult. It’s probably one of the most difficult tasks, as you really want it to be eye catching and stand out.
So how about these drafts?
Which then turn into this… (yes, the gorilla is still the old one :))
So, here he is, the new and final Gongo. We hope you like him.
Let’s have a break to regain focus 🙂
So, from the previous blog post, it is clear that our beloved Gongo needs to change. So, we are redesigning him again.
Stay tuned for more. 🙂
In the meantime we are playing with icons for the store and your home screen.
This is one of the first prototypes. Let’s see how this goes.
Changes, again! This is what makes the process of creating an app fun, changes. They can also become frustrating, but in the end all will be well.
In the end, I just made new ones.. 🙂 The rainbow colored one was made by Amilie in Adobe Illustrator…excellent work for a 3 year old girl… (pst…who likes the rainbow colored best???)
So, what about the ocean level… there wouldn’t be a basket, would there…? Of course not…There will be a TREASURE CHEST. (without any treasure, I’m afraid)
So, this is what it will look like in the game…(small chest or big pears…? hmmm…)
So, the baskets are done… and fine they are…:)
And here with some..ehm… what are they called again??? Ah.. bananas and strawberries…!
Psst… the title song is ready… just press play!
Now, here we are with the tedious task of choosing the correct letter design.
In the end we decided to use the ones we had laying around… 😛 Thanks for drawing them Evelina!
The idea of adding baskets… these will hold star rewards (or better…fruit rewards)
Amateur draft of the title to be. (I made the giraffe… can you tell?)
It is time to work with some bubbles and see what they look like.
Here is the animation in color. Click to view.
Designing a title screen is extremely challenging, as you want to get it right and display the relevant content. Here the current drafts.
So, here another draft in color. This time with body and all.
Here some small and simple animation slide. Click to view 🙂
So, here the sketch for the new Gongo… it’s just the face so far.
Trying to animate the guy. Unfortunately, he doesn’t look so well… we need to redesign Gongo 🙁
Backgrounds for the game play screens. Looking good, lets add bubbles!
Sketches over sketches. Designing content and UI is fun, but can become very hard work. Level map sketches 🙂
Thinking about and working on the game logic is challenging and the original idea had to be modified due to limited resources. Creating apps/games or any kind of software starts with a wireframe. Thanks Shahriar for this excellent example.
Lets draw Gongo in different styles and see what he looks like. Cute, or not?!
Which animals to choose for the sticker album? So many and they all need to be redrawn. All in all, we have over 100 animals to choose.
The original UI…lets go from there and see what we will get.
