I've been working on my GUI code, and decided to use the graphic design site 99designs.com to find a concept/color scheme for the UI.
For any of you who are graphic designers and want to take a crack at it, the contest is here.
I am writing a video game and need a concept for the user interface graphics. I'm not looking for individual icons yet (I'll bid that work out separately), just an overall look.
The example I've provided (see "sample-concept.jpg") has some of the characteristics I'm looking for:
On the other hand, I'm a programmer, not an artist, and I'm not attached to the particulars of the sample concept. If you have a completely different idea, please submit it.
I've made both the dialogs and controls 30% transparent. Feel free to try variations on this, as long as controls are readable over the sample backgrounds. The video game code can support any texture on the control/dialog background. Transparency can vary over the surface if you like. Textures can be an arbitrary R,G,B,A image, in other words.
Your submissions should be in the form of a PNG file with appropriate levels of transparency (see "submission.png"). Three sample background images are provided. Your UI concept should be readable over all three. You will be specifying:
In addition to the design fee, I will be happy to credit the designer and give a link to your website in my documentation.
