We will also argue that to have a consistent visual identity across all the games will create a good user experience, so this blog post should also be considered to count towards the Excellent User Experience category.
We created the logo first, to set the tone, find the colors and use this as a baseline in the visual identity.
We use a website to generate this glowing effect
To get the same look and feel across the apps we also use the same background.

The buttons on the bottom and other geometrical elements used in the apps are created in Photoshop from scratch with the help of this tutorial:
Why do we bother creating this from scratch? Because it’s fun! 😀 And a bit retro to not use AI to generate everything?

Implement the visual identity across the apps
The Power BI Scoreboard
The Hangman Game
Peaches Flight App
We will also make sure to implement this visual identity across the other websites and apps that we make as the solution progresses to make sure that the user feels that they are playing games in the same universe.
