From the screens of SHIELD’s hovership to the various iterations of Tony Stark’s HUD helmet display, a lot of thought went into the creation of the Avengers’ user interfaces.
Visual artist Jayse Hansen sez:
Included are some partial explanations of how the HUD diagnostic functions Variations of it in ‘all clear’ mode, and a ‘battle mode’, after the suit has suffered damage and new windows have popped up to show depleted weapon stores and hazardous environmentals and general.
The flight menu was designed with input from an A-10 Fighter Pilot. I like to keep my stuff accurate – while still taking design liberties that films afford.
I start all designs on paper so I included some ideas for the dock icons. When I sketch stuff out – I find it important to not use a ruler and give yourself ‘permission to draw badly”. In the final icons, the more detailed versions show system status based on the way they animate.
