An art director friend is looking for a good resource for interface
designs for games. My guess is it's a game for a website, but maybe
not. She has a tight deadline of 2 weeks to design a game interface.

Web resources or book recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks! -Kim

Hi Kim,

Two books that might be helpful are

- Game Design Workshop: Designing, Prototyping, & Playtesting Games

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1578202221/

- Chris Crawford on Game Design

http://www.amazon.com/Chris-Crawford-Game-Design/dp/0131460994/

On the web, one place to start is a collection of information on game
design patterns:

Best,
