|I'm a full stack web dev and hacker by heart. However, all my front-end designs just can't compete with anything delivered by a (semi-)professional designer. Are there any CodeAcademy-like resources that provide actionable advice on how to do better UI design? I'm getting tired of hiring freelancers.|
