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.
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.
