WRD PLY – UI Design (iOS)

Posted in Games

WRD PLY is a fast-paced mobile word game that pits the player agains the clock to form words out of letter triplets. Backed by a jazzy number by one Ian Faleer, the auto-tuned key presses make the player feel like the most swingin’ pianist.

Sam Marcus of While True Fork presented me with a working game and placeholder graphics. Using a contrasting/complementary color palette to make the UI elements pop, I had fun designing and arranging the simple, flat icons. The actual game itself will have moving elements, like a spinning background for the “Final Word” and “Game Over” screens. Given that it is still in development, the final look may change.
