The official Chronicles of Spellborn site offers up an article by
developer Niel Vredeveldt  on the art of the user interface

navigating TCOS a pleasant experience for everyone and creating the
actual GUI consumes most of my time. I also work on the movement
system, the combat system, player controls and all other combat
