HELP me redesign the main screen for an existing app with > 1.5million downloads!!!! https://play.google.com/store/apps/…s.wordhero
This is the main screen that the user is presented with after the splash screen. It is a vertical scroll area. The background will not scroll with it!
Main screen is comprised of (from top to bottom):
(player defined "tagline" message)
(Assigned player league)
PLAY Button (can also say WAIT or AUTO)
(text detailing number of seconds left in current game)
A number of buttons follow. The number is VARIABLE. Eg: if there is NEWS, or an UPGRADE is available, those buttons will be there. If not, they might be hidden.
- FRIENDS LIST
Icons/etc on the buttons are probably a good idea. Additional buttons may be added later, so assume they will be implemented as a vertical list of buttons. HOWEVER, if you come up with something else cool, PLEASE show it !
1) Take a look at the main page of the following app (you will need to install it):
https://play.google.com/store/apps/…hs.anagram It has a similar button system.
2) Choose a consistent color pallet
3) Majority of players are female. Stay away from cold/dark designs.
4) Backgrounds should be tileable (preferred) or scaleable (no hard edges if intended to be scaled out to 2.5k x 1k pixels on 10inch tablets!).
5) Multiple backgrounds overlaid are possible (eg: if you want something overlaid in a corner)
6) Portrait on phone, Landscape on tablet.
- design the main screen for both tablet and portrait (buttons on the side in tablet mode is fine, like attachment)
- tileable background that can be redone in various colors for different screens in the app (eg: friends, leaderboards, help, etc)
- redo the game logo if you feel creative
The winning designer should be available for further contract work (lots of icons, backgrounds, dialog box design, etc)
