Blood to Ink

Blood to Ink is a narrative murder mystery game developed for tablet. You play as A.E.C. a writer in the 1950s writing about the recent death of Hollywood heartthrob Alfred Glenn. You can explore the mansion for clues, investigate objects, and question suspects, all while piecing together what really happened that night. Our game is available for Android mobile tablet devices using Google Play.

As the UI artist on the team, my goal was to make every screen unique and exciting while keeping in mind the current art style as well as having assets remain consistent throughout.

Beginning with thumbnail sketches, and then moving onto digital wireframes, I was able to test and iterate on my concepts weekly in order to create a comprehensive and easy to learn user experience.
