Game UI designs

My roles: UI Designer / 2D Graphic Designer

As the chief UI designer of the Nintendo game Tomodachi Life, along with the members in the development department, I created UI and 2D graphics. This game has sold 6.5 million units worldwide.


Design solutions

This game had a vast amount of texts, but we made legible game screens by delicate adjustments of the text sizes, colors, spaces, and adding a lot of iconographies and illustrations. As the paragraph sizes were completely different in each country, we prepared enough margins in the text boxes from the beginning and it saved our localizing processes a lot.
