I Dread Writing Embedded GUIs
3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 5 Nov 2021
I think this is mostly a problem of finding good tools for your workflow. Admittedly, there are fewer of them in the space of embedded development than for the usual "apps", but there are some. Besides the already mentioned LVGL  for the actual GUI you'll need a proper build tool that can handle all that conversion stuff OP's talking about reliably. I can only recommend Bob  here. Unfortunately, it's very unknown but brings everything you need for embedded development (w/ or w/o GUI, higher-level stuff like custom Linux images, too). Using it for years professionally and for personal projects and will never look back.

Unable to find fast lightweight TFT driver for TTGO T-Display and ESP-IDF
5 projects | reddit.com/r/esp32 | 18 Mar 2021
ST7789 is a standard MIPI DCS chip so you could HAGL with the MIPI DCS HAL. In addition to drawing rectangles etc I have used it four couple of proof of concept apps such as video player and old school demo effects.
LameUI - A UI Library for MCUs I have been making for past 6 months

Looks great! Don't worry about hours used or how many people will use it. Think of it as a learning experience. I did something similar with the only goal being to learn the C language.
