Hi all,

Recently, yevlempy [1] and myself, Kishan [2] decided to write a
desktop application (game) based on the  "Spelling Bee" format popular
across the world. Read more about 'spelling bee' here.[3]  But, being
a game, it requires to have a nice UI appealing to the target
user-base, in this case, children of 8-16 yrs. [4] would give a proper
underatanding and a somewhat-demo of the kind of app. we are planning
it to be.

 And the problem lies herein. Neither of us have any experience
reagrding artwork/design and we are not good at it either. I know some
PyGtk and have used the Glade interface designer before. Sitting down
for a couple of hours, I managed to come up with this [5] And, I think
it looks ugly. So we request you guys to guide us on how to go about

Any suggestions/feedback and pointers would be of great help!
