TNW has an interesting article about finding suitable designers for startups, a paragraph is caught my attention:

“If your budget doesn’t let you hire both, another option is to hire a horse and let them grow a horn on the job: find a good visual designer who’s also willing to learn front-end coding or a great front-end engineer who wants to get better at design.”

In other words, becoming a ninja or shining unicorn as a designer or engineer, we have to learn both humanity and art of engineering.

How do you find that perfect designer? Better yet, where do you even start looking? DesignerHire began to answer that question. As a group of entrepreneurs, they were frustrated by the process so they developed a tool that helps employers find the best site to hire designers for their needs. is broken into multiple categories, including UI/UX, mobile, web, and graphic design.
