Guardians of the Galaxy

The new film Guardians of the Galaxy is full of crazy cool future digital interfaces and interactions. David Sheldon-Hicks, creative director of motion at Territory, the firm that did all the UI work for the film, recently took the time to talk about their work in the film — as well as share a ton… Read More

Ender’s Game

Despite the controversy surrounding Ender’s Game, I wanted to share a handful of images of UI from the film.

There’s more on Ash’s site, too.

For years I’ve though about writing a book on interface design in science fiction movies. The idea always started as a big coffee table book full of great examples, but then the details started to get tricky: “how would the book be organized?”; “how would all the interconnected themes weave together in the examples?”; and… Read More

Final Fantasy UIs

The blog Huds and Guis has put together three great video montages of UI design from the 2001 film Final Fantasy. The film may not be all that great, but these UI sequences are a lot of fun to watch. Definitely UI candy! It’s an interesting collection of holographic displays, globes and spheres, small detailed… Read More
