mmmage got their new app design by running a design contest:
Disk Space Fan UI Design
Check out mmmage's App design contest…
Disk Space Fan is a disk space analyzer program for Windows.
I'd like change the existing theme to science fiction style, which looks like HUD on a dark glass. The keywords are: glass, HUD, science fiction. It should look like the UI for a pilot. The green light or blue light produces the images on the glass to help the pilot to know the flight system information. It should look very cool. There are three main screens: 1. Select the disk or folder to scan. It should display the usage of disks. In the scanning, it should display a nice progress bar. 2. The chart of disk space usage after scanning. This is the most important screen of the software. a. Please use the chart as existing software. You may change the color and border. b.It also needs to show a list of the top ten largest files or folders of the selected folder. c. When the mouse is hovering one part of chart, it should display the information of the related folder or file, such as name, size, modified date. 3. The duplicate file list. It should use checkbox to allow the user to select file to delete. Before you start design, I hope you can use the Disk Space Fan, and know some basic concepts of this software. The web site is: http://www.diskspacefan.com I add 3 screenshots of the existing software for referring. But please do not be limited by these screenshots. The layout can be changed as you like. I hope you can do much better. I add a screenshot of Starcraft. This is the glass effect I'd like to have. The size of the screen should be 1280*1024, resolution is 96 dpi.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their app design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
mmmage collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
I've worked with designers and developers for the past 15 years, including managing teams of in-house designers and working with contractors. I've had the pleasure of working with some great people but I have to say Sasha is by far the most talented, dedicated designer I've ever worked with. He is a huge talent. He has a great sense of balancing the business objective with the final design to carry the message. He truly cares about what the outcome is. He's self-motivated. If he doesn't know something, he'll learn it on his own, and he needs very little direction. He nails the concept on the first try nearly every project we work on. Oh, and he also happens to be a grateful, kind human being and easy to work with. I can't say enough. I will continue to work with Sasha as long as he's available! (Some day he'll be famous and I'll have to find a backup.)
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
