Hello community!

Hi there!

I'm a professional designer and nonpro-gamer. Not a hardcore one but I think I'm keeping track of most of the games ever released. And since the TSW was announced I was waiting for the game. And as an ex-wow player (pls don't judge me as an wow-kid but let's be honest it's a great game It just got old and the player age went down bliz makes the same thing with the every expansion) Any way the topic is not wow here. I think TSW is way way way superior then wow. Has a extremely different game mechanic (which I was not even expecting) and includes templars Quests are hard and makes you think (which causes to shoo away most of the unintelligent players) Even it's community is acting mature in a surprising way.

Anyway. I'll try to make it short. I love the whole game. Except one thing. The UI and the branding is way too horrendous. It literally hurts my eyes. It's obvious that the art director didn't had time to give revise on the UI and rushed to the release date.

Ok now here's the deal. My designing skills are in publishing mostly. But I've had enough with publishing and advertising. I quit my job and educating my self with UI and UX Design. (even I'm going to attend master on this particular topic next year)

And what I offer I'll use my design experience and re-design a WHOLE UI. I'll be submiting hard sketches in a few days. And since I'm not a hardcore gamer you guys come in to the play. I'm going to reshape the whole design for the great game play experience plus informative what the heck is going on with your char and enemies. And you guys could even say `that looks like **** re-design it`

This is not a UI that I'm going to design. This is going to be OUR design project. I may even need help with coding in the future also

ps. I'll be posting traditional and digital sketches in a few days.

an Idea!

forgot to mention I'm thinking about to similar but significant 3 different color layouts for each factions. Because when you play dragons for example, it doesn't feel like you're a dragon. it just feels like you're playing TSW.

I want to applaud you sir. If these posts are a reflection of you capability and willingness to apply that capability then im damn excited to see what you can do.

If you have skype or a mic or if you dont like or have voice chat we can pm or talk in irc. But the point is i would absolutely honored you talked me through how to do what you do or if you take some of my feedback on whatever you make.

Edit: Sorry if i came off a bit strong im just quite excited.

No no you didn't came out strong. Actually I'm more excited that you're hyped too

but I want to clear something that might understood wrong. I didn't quit my job just for redesigning this. I want to be an UX designer and I'm going to use my 5-6 month research experience on this UI. (sorry if it's understood wrongly. English is not my naive language I can make mistakes like this) But this doesn't mean I won't be spending time on project.
