TOURNAMENT ARTWORK   //   Theme : Trick out Your Ride

In this competition, 3 teams of 2 designers were challenged to create an iPad game interface in the form of a final composition of the game’s main screen. In this game, the player selected components to create their own tricked-out vehicle of their dreams. Each team created a workspace where the player could pick and customize components, and apply them to a vehicle. The competition was made up of 2 rounds. In the first 10-minute round, the teams prepared a black & white wireframe, outlining the architecture of their game’s design. In the final 20-minute round, each team completed a final composition of their game screen, including one word or sketch contributed by the audience to incorporate. After the final round, the audience will determine the winning design by show of applause.
