Jayse Hansen has gained international attention for designing some of the most iconic fictional user interfaces in film history.

Computer Graphics World Magazine

In The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Katniss Everdeen leads an invasion with a handheld hologram device, and Beetee sits before a multi-panel computer display in order to hack into the evil Capitol. Tony Stark puts his Iron Man helmet on and hundreds of relevant graphics animate to life: maps locating nearby enemies, flight controls, suit diagnostics, and holographs that all help to tell the stories in Iron Man and The Avengers. Floor-to-ceiling holographic displays enable James Franco to explain how a new drug will make apes smarter in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Jayse Hansen has gained international attention for designing some of the most iconic fictional user interfaces in film history. His work specializes in “revealing the details beneath the surface” of machines, computers and robots using devices such as holographic tablets in Ender’s Game, or the creation of new superhero gear with holographic tables in Disney’s Big Hero 6. In the film Pixels, look closely for many of his ’80s video game easter-eggs hidden in the advanced military UIs.

In addition to designing for the fictional film world, Hansen has also consulted and designed for various real-world software companies in VR and AR. The US Department of Defense employs his “outside-the-limits” design thinking to dramatically increase efficiency in dealing with immense amounts of time-sensitive, mission-critical information. Hansen’s work is featured in the April/May 2016 issue of Computer Graphics World, while more of his designs can be found on his website at www.jayse.io
