Gaming infrastructure as a service.
Merigo offers gaming infrastructure as a service. Rather than recreate complex gaming logic from scratch each time, the platform offers software solutions for a variety of gaming types and scenarios - saving game building teams thousands of hours. The platform lacked a visual design prior to launch. The team reached out to me needing a design system created so they could give their already-existing MVP designs a marketable look and feel, as well as an improved visual language for the user experience. I walked the team through a series of exercises where we inventoried the components of their interface, defined a clear, unique aesthetic style, and produced a design system in the form of a component library. The development team leveraged this design system to apply the new style to existing screens throughout the experience.
The team provided me with the initial MVP screen wireframes. I thoroughly inventoried them to find all components and layouts unique to the experience.
I went around the web and found holistic UI design samples and component-based design inspiration. I presented my findings with the client and gathered client preferences that would inform the final design system production.
Based on the clients preferences from the visual language workshop, I crafted a full UI component library.
To validate the component designs, I created a few key screens and iterated on the components based on stakeholder feedback.
With a new visual design and improved visual language, Merigo was ready to reskin their entire app and blow the socks off the game building industry.
