The Gamification Aesthetics Color Wheel

The Gamification Aesthetic Colour Wheel is a Gamification design toolkit by Victor Manrique and Isidro Rodrigo

Gamification is not only built out of mechanics. We need design, art and technology to create an everlasting gamified experience, and we strongly believe that gamification aesthetics have not received the importance they truly deserve yet.

As you might have realised, this toolkit is designed as “a color wheel”, meaning that all of its elements are related to each other and that there is some kind of logic behind them. There are 12 key elements to take into account when defining any experience’s aesthetics, and we usually have to follow certain steps to get the best out of it.

Gamification Mechanics Videos by Isidro Rodrigo

I have been doing an online course called “Gamification Design 2015” with iversity.org which has been quiet interesting.

In particular Isidro Rodrigo talks about how to design your own gamified experience. He has created video tutorials to guide you through various mechanics, there will be 35 in total—he has not finished them all yet.
