About this project
Whirred is a word game that rewards you for making cool words. Capitalizing on esoteric word categories, quirks of etymology, or relationships to previously played words all provide opportunities for scoring big points. Players make words by popping or dragging letter tiles into the play field in the middle of the game screen. They can use any combination of letters in their rack (red) and their opponent’s last move (blue) to do that.

Working with Akiva on the basic mechanics of the game, I aimed to simplify the entirety of interaction into a coherent, fun experience. I put on my UX hat to map out the flow of all the screens that were needed, sketched wireframes and finally designed all the visuals, as well as a website for promotional purposes.
