I have been a User Interface Artist at Gameloft for the past three years, during which I have learned many things regarding the way menus are designed and how people interact with them. The more I learned, the more I realised how limited Loading Artist was as a website. So a few months ago I decided to redesign Loading Artist from the ground up, thinking twice about every webcomic element and figuring out how to improve upon it.
Once I had my designs done and ready, I met with Jordan from ‘Extra Ordinary’ (a great webcomic by Li Chen (check it out!)) who at first I thought was just a web developer, but have since realised also some kind of a god. The couple months that followed were spent working side by side every Sunday, bringing the designs to life (well, Jordan coded like a pro, and I kinda just watched, sometimes convincing myself I know enough about code to offer the occasional solution).
I am extremely happy with the result, and it’s only going to get better. There are still some ideas up my sleeve that weren’t quite ready yet for today’s launch, but I’ll be adding them over time. So have a look around, I’d really like to hear your thoughts on it so far.
Thank you so much, Jordan, and thanks to everyone who is reading this right now. It sounds cliché I know, but if it wasn’t for all of you this wouldn’t have been possible and I would have been in bed ages ago.
