Some of the designers who made it happen

Winner - Liu Design
A crisp, clean design that did everything I needed. Very responsive to suggestions. A pleasure to work with.
- Mgoodfel
Finalist - Sachin Mendhekar
Mmactors' designs showed a level of talent and effort well above any of the other submissions. Additionally, he provided extremely quick and thorough follow-up services at no additional charge even after the handover was complete. Complete customer satisfaction is clearly a priority for Mmactors, and I wholeheartedly recommend him to others.

What industry do you think your business is most related to?

Computer

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

99designs has suggested I simplify my brief.  So I've reduced it to this:

I'm looking for UI ideas.  The game is a Minecraft style construction game, set in a solar system.  Sample screen shots are attached below (background1, 2, 3).

I'm looking for an overall style for the UI, not detailed icons.  I've attached some samples from other games.  I like the hand-drawn look of "And Yet It Moves."  I'd like to see someone try a blueprint-inspired UI.  COGS has very elaborate controls.  I wonder if a rube-goldberg style could be applied to controls?  Portal2 has a very simple look based on their panels.  Can you do a minecraft style UI based around blocks?

I'm looking for something with an engineering, technical or construction inspiration.  Something that looks like blueprints, circuit diagrams, or exploded parts diagrams.  Mad scientist style?

Please just shoot ideas at me, without fussing over details.  I'm looking for a concept, not a detailed design.
