Interfacing with UI #0 – Introduction

Over the past few years I’ve been slowly drawn into the user interface tasks that we encounter in our contracts and games. Some areas of UI design and construction have a lot of information written about them whilst other areas have precious little. With the aim of passing knowledge on I’ve decided to outline my experience over a series of UI related articles with the hope that it’ll help others working on user interfaces.

While I still have a lot to learn I’ve also learnt a lot of tricks that can help. I especially have a wealth of information in regards to the different frameworks and libraries that exist out in the wild, especially when it comes to Unity. I’ll be posting the links to the articles here as and when they are written to keep them together in one place.

If anyone wants to get in contact with me feel free to reach me at richard@roguevector.com or my Twitter at @CWolf.
