“Mike Berg did incredible work for us on Disc Drivin’. He really understood the game well and added many of his own great ideas to our requests. He effortlessly adapted to an existing art style, and made significant improvements and additions to both our UI and in-game assets. Mike is very professional, makes beautiful designs and artwork, and completes the work quickly. Additionally, his communication skills are the best of anyone we’ve worked with. He responds quickly to requests and feedback, and is terrific at iterating. We definitely want to work with Mike on future projects, and cannot recommend him enough.” – Michael Bean, Pixelocity

I am arguably one of Disc Drivin’s biggest fans. I started a tournament for cryin’ out sakes. I love this game. So when @cannos came to me and asked if I wanted to work on a new UI and splash screen for the iPad version, I was… excited.

They asked for a comic book style splash screen with lots of character, and the UI was to resemble an ESPN or FOX Sports score HUD.

This is a time-lapse video of the creation of the splash screen. It was recorded with ScreenNinja, available on the Mac App Store. Highly recommended. Music by Whitaker Trebella.
