Design and Icon Set for a Hero Defense game Defense Warfare

December 2017


Defense Warfare is a large-scale hero defense game. I’ve worked on the UI design – menus and HUD, as well as the icons and logo design.

The Design

Blurry backgrounds and lights are key design choices of the UI. The HUD has blue lights and interesting shapes.

Icons & Graphics

There are different icon sets with different looks. The HUD icons are mostly white so they contrast well on the dark background of the HUD. The buttons have the primary brand color – blue, with an outline. The same style choice are shared with the power ups as well, which have different colors for the levels.

The game was developed mostly in Unreal Engine.
