We could also do worse :-) , given :
1/ the needed time that won't be available
2/ the fact that people have highly various needs for a GUI.
3/ that graphic designers are already trained on flash/web technologies (that can be used to do beautiful interfaces at cheap prices).

You could check notus (http://notus.sourceforge.net/) , which was developped by some boosters I think, and which has a modern c++ approach and also design documents.
If you are looking for a minimalist 'open window' gui library, I think it's possible to find very good multi-platform projects that can do that (dlib, cimg, ...).
