User Interface Design for Games & Apps for Desktops, Tablets, Mobile & Web
Jonny Shaw | Digital Designer | Halifax, UK | Age: 31
I’m a freelance digital designer who enjoys doodling, modelling & creating things for computer games. I specialize in UI Design/Development, but I’m also experienced in branding, concept design, 3D modelling & a little animation.
Movies, books, gaming, sport, & the odd hike out to the hills help to fill the time in between.
The Digilocker is multi-purposed, it’s my portfolio, my projects site, and the website itself is now on it’s 3rd public iteration. I’ve tried to put something together here that will allow for future expansion and will allow for future updates on client releases, tutorials, as well as being home for larger in-house projects.
High impact branding for your Games & Apps.
Full scale, fully animated, & retina ready UI’s with Scaleform and NGUI.
Environments, Characters & Creatures for Games & Entertainment Media
I first met Jonny in an online forum in 2011 when he offered to refresh the graphics in my Windows Phone app, RSS Central. I had created the graphics myself up to this point and they certainly looked like they had been created by a programmer rather than an artist.
Jonny’s initial mockups were modern, stylish, and plentiful — I was somewhat overwhelmed by the options that he presented, in fact! It took some time to narrow down my choice to a single option.
The response from my user base was unanimously positive, with quite a number of reviews added simply to compliment the new graphics.
In the time since then I have worked with Jonny on a variety of other projects, including most recently a conversion of RSS Central to Windows 8. Jonny impressed me again with his application presentation designs and graphics, and I entirely attribute the fresh and vibrant presentation of the finished app to him. As a reviewer of the app in the Windows Store said just today, “I’ve never seen RSS look so beautiful.”
Jonny has always been professional, responsive and overflowing with ideas and enthusiasm. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again in the future and would wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone in need of design and graphical talent.
