Art Direction & Interface Design

"We love the UI in the IRONMAN movies, but we want to make it for real!"


Hyper Intelligent Vehicle Enhancement (HIVE)


Working closely with an experienced development team, we designed innovative ground-control solutions for satellite operation.  I explored concept art & design directions creating a highly refined visual design language modeled after futuristic, cinematic movie concepts.  I created rapid prototypes and animated visuals with detailed style-guides for an accurate hand-off to development.










Take a look at a few different initial directions.  Elements and styles were eventually combined, and mix-n-matched to achieve the final design language.
