I've been looking through the 2011 gsoc project ideas, and the Zenmap
GUI caught my attention right away. I'm in my 4th year of school
pursuing a CS degree. I have used Python on a number of projects in
the past, and I have GUI experience with Qt4 and PyQt4. I know that
Zenmap is GTK (and from reading the list archive will be staying that
way), but I feel like I could pickup PyGtk quickly.

 I've been able to think of a number of ways to increase usability
(tool bar, start-up screen that lists profiles and recent scans
similar to wireshark, etc), but I am curious if there is a a Zenmap
brand that I should follow. If I add icons or images is there a style
that reflects Zenmap? If I use color, are there colors that represent
Zenmap? Any input would greatly help even for the proposal mock-ups
I'm working on.

We don't really have a style or user interface guidelines, apart from
very loosely following the GNOME HIG. (See the zenmapGUI.higwidgets
package.) For the icons there is an established style in the files in
share/zenmap/pixmaps--but I think getting more icons (for WAPs and
routers, etc.) is more important than having them fit the same style.
