Version 2, still trying to find a design I like. The Deus Ex is an inspiration for this one. The dark orange color gives a hint of distrust and deceit which is are tactics the KRM engages in. I might have to move the menu to the right and add more dock panels on the left because this mock up looks almost identical to what Deus Ex has.
Version 2 with a small glow around the borders of the buttons.
