How Jeff Landauer started their button or icon journey

Summary

We are re-doing the first log in dialog for the online space game Star Sonata and want 3 128x128 buttons for "Play as Guest", "Create New Account", and "Existing Account". This dialog will be the first thing that new players see, so the 3 buttons should be attractive, inviting, and mesh well with our current aesthetic.

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

We are re-doing the first log in dialog for the online space game Star Sonata and want 3 128x128 buttons for "Play as Guest", "Create New Account", and "Existing Account". This dialog will be the first thing that new players see, so the 3 buttons should be attractive, inviting, and mesh well with our current aesthetic.

Each button should be a 128x128 png. The main color that our UI is based around is RGB(2, 233, 254). Also, slightly modified rollover versions of each button would be good. You can see our website http://www.starsonata.com to see our general design or play the game to see the rest of our UI.

The buttons will appear on this dialog here: http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/12…dialog.png across the black space in the middle. Screen shots of the current version of our game are here: http://www.starsonata.com/screens.html. The UI in the new version is basically the same.

The buttons should be based around our main UI color so as to be consistent with the rest of the game, but that doesn't mean they should be monochrome. There should definitely be other colors as counterpoint.

In general, I'm looking for some inviting icons with a little bit of personality and maybe a touch of humor. This dialog will be the first thing that new players see when they run the game, so these buttons should make people want to proceed and get to the game.

We would also like the original PSD's from the winner so we can change the text in the future if need be or change the language that the text is in.

Payment is by Pal Pal, or US check.

EDIT: it would be nice to accent each button slightly with a different color to distinguish them. Suggested colors that are already in the game are:
- Guest account: 0BD88A
- New account: FF5F81
- Existing account: 009AD5

Wants

- Play as Guest buttonShould include "Play as Guest" in the button somewhere.
- Create New Account buttonShould include "Create New Account" in the button somewhere.
- Existing AccountShould include "Existing Account" in the button somewhere.
- All text should be Sui Generis font.
- All buttons should have a rollover version

Don't want

- I don't want any of our existing 2d art from the game to be used. We are only a few months away from a new version of the game that uses all 3d art and these buttons will be used for the new version of the game as well. Other flavor art that's on the web site can be used if you want, but it's not really what I have in mind.
