I joined the BFME: Reforged-team in September 2020 to be responsible for some UX design aspects for the game’s backend. My main responsibilities included proposing designs for things, such as the game’s launcher and other functional interfaces inside and outside of the game.
- Propose designs for the game’s launcher and other functional interfaces inside and outside of the game
- Create a design for a custom backend admin panel, in which the team would be able to view server and game status, as well as manage users (time-out, ban, restore password, etc.)
- Combine a modern, flat design together with the fantasy-inspired Lord of the Rings aesthetic (font, iconography, etc.)
- Produce multiple mobile email designs for newsletters, password reset messages, etc.
Since the BFME: Reforged-team planned to build up a completely custom backend for their project, they also wanted to have an admin panel to have an overview over the game’s health, server status and player status (active, banned, password reset requested, etc.). I tried to combine a modern, flat design language with some elements taken from Lord of the Rings, including the custom font used in the movies.
