Total Recall – UI Design

Here’s a highlight reel of the UI work from the 2012 remake of Total Recall, by the amazingly talented Ash Thorp.

There’s quite a good range of HUDs and GUIs in Total Recall. In the clip you will see HUDs, hologram displays, scanners, maps, vehicle UI, and other touch UIs on a range of surfaces.

There’s definitely a consistent style to the UI design, and what I like about it is the mix of complex lines and shapes which resembles the look of circuit boards.

What I also noticed is that a lot of the UIs feature on transparent surfaces, which coupled with the ‘circuitry’ design aesthetic gives the illusion that the user can see the inner workings of the computer as they interact.
