Filament Games

Filament Games is an educational game studio in Madison, Wisconsin where Dave worked as a UX/UI designer for a number of years, and continues to collaborate with from time to time. Together they have shipped over a dozen games. This is a small selection of those projects.

Beats Empire

Beats Empire is a game about running a music studio and making business decisions based on market data. Dave was tasked with creating concept art and defining an appropriate style for the game in the preproduction stage.

That’s Your Right

That’s Your Right is a competitive card game that depends on your understanding of the United States Bill of Rights to win. The game was built in HTML5 and targeted both both desktop and tablet environments. Dave acted as UX designer, UI artist, and technical artist on this project. This included userflows, wireframes, and concept art in preproduction, and then art direction, UI art creation, art implementation, and light JavaScript coding during production.
