Saints Row The Third


Overview

Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name. The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute. Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to a new city, playing out the most outlandish gameplay scenarios ever seen. Strap it on.

 

My Role

I was UI Lead on this project.  It was a reboot of the franchise so we created the interface from scratch. In pre-pro the UI team consisted of myself and one other artist.  Towards the end of production we ramped up to an 8 person UI team that I helped coordinate.  I designed, scripted, and did style for this project.

 























Alternate Mocks

Here are some mocks that didn't make it into game.  Some are alternate versions of shipped screens.

Red Faction Guerrilla


Overview

Red Faction: Guerrilla is a 3rd person, open-world action shooter set on Mars, 50 years after the events of the original Red Faction. Players assume the role of an insurgent fighter with the newly re-established Red Faction movement as they battle for liberation from the oppressive Earth Defense Force. Throughout their fight for freedom, players carve their own path, wreaking havoc across the vast, open-world environment of Mars, from the desolate mining outpost of Parker to the gleaming EDF capital city of Eos. Utilizing improvised weapons, explosives and re-purposed mining equipment and vehicles, Red Faction: Guerrilla allows players to tear through fully destructible environments in an unforgiving Martian landscape swarming with EDF forces. Red Faction: Guerrilla also features a robust multiplayer component, including several modes focused on destruction-based gameplay.

 

My Role

Red Faction: Guerrilla was my jam!  I worked with one other artist to design this interface.  We ran with the art direction of "low-tech in the future" and made a gritty, miner-inspired interface.

MADDEN 06


Overview

Madden '06 was the first installment of the franchise on the Xbox360/PS3 consoles.  Our goal was to design a "next-gen" (at the time) inteface for Madden.  We played jazz for a while and did some experiementation until we settled on our "Madden OS" concept.

 

My Role

This project had a quite a bit of pre-pro.  I worked closely with the UI Lead to do style experimentation.  As we entered produciton I scripted features such as Play Call, Team Select, Main Menu, In-Game Broadcast Graphics (Ticker, PiP, etc.) and various Player Stat screens.
