Concept

Word Dash was a timed game app where users were presented with six letters and they had to enter as many words as possible with those letters.

When I heard the title of the game was “Word Dash”, I envisioned letters in a race and thought it would be a fun theme. So I created anthropomorphic cartoon letters for some of the screens.

UI Elements

I wanted to give the elements a tactile feel, so I put a beveled effect on the tiles and buttons.

I applied the cartoon theme to the tiled letters as well – though I should have checked the screens on mobile devices to make sure the letters were legible.

Play, Loading, Bonus, High Score, and Options screens.
