While at Fortnight Studio, I lead the website design for Ember Sword’s fantasy MMORPG website.
The biggest challenge as a website designer was they had limited game art. This was because the game was in early development.
During the setup process, I used Figma to create a style board. I explored and designed individual components to show the direction I would take. It’s a little tease for the client to get a feel for how the website design will look.
I sketched a few ideas for the homepage hero based on some of the early game concept art. This gave their artists time to create the art for my design concept. A handful of iterations and a cup full of tweaks later, we finalised the homepage design which you can see below.
I designed 15 more pages for both desktop and mobile. Their in-house team completed the development for the project. During this process they changed the homepage hero for a stunning animated matte painting.
