Game Design


 

The Ceros Experience

I co-designed and collaborated with a fellow designer, Allison Tomazin, to create a casual interactive game with the goal of promoting one of the company's more popular products by delivering a new, exciting experience. This gallery shows a few of the scenes I was responsible for designing, the completed game storyboard, the style guide, and inspirational pieces from our moodboard. Along with the concept and design, I helped create the script and copy for the entire experience. | Low-poly design style | Ceros, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator |
