Short Exercise: Visual Design of Games

A Beautiful Game – 2048

The game 2048 is a great example of beautiful graphic design using many of the elements discussed. The game uses proximity and alignment to group together the supportive elements, the core elements of the game that players interact with, and the core elements that communicate that display the player’s progress. It also uses size in order to differentiate between important elements (game pieces, the game title/objective, the scores, etc). A primary graphic design choice of the game is the implementation of color and contrast. The chosen color pallet is very cohesive and aesthetically pleasing, but still uses strong contrast in order to communicate to players their progress.
