And here you thought Fine Art was just about the guys making the stuff that goes in the game. Today, we're looking at the work of design firm 1910, who design stuff that goes before, or on top of, a game.

Specifically, they've designed menus and user interface systems for games like Syndicate, Bionic Commando and Bulletstorm.

Lately, they've also branched out and worked with Paradox on crafting the logo and "identity" for Showdown Effect, the studio's homage to 80s and 90s action movies.

DISCUSSION

I always love it when a game has a good UI. Sure, good graphics are always nice, but if you spend hours dealing with poorly-designed menus, it's going to detract from the game greatly.
