I’m a developer and have no problem coding the MVP. However I totally suck in CSS/HTML/Design. The MVP looks like crap and have had beta testers tell me that although they found it valuable they can’t recommend the app in their company because it doesn’t look “polished” enough.
I’ve tried hard to find UX/CSS folks in the Bay Area (where I’m based) but the folks I found are either web designers (no experience designing for SaaS apps) or are UX only (can only produce wireframes). The ones that are good in UX AND produce HTML/CSS appropriate for SaaS apps are like unicorns.
I was wondering if anyone has experience outsourcing this and what are the “best practices” in landing people like these? Has anyone has a good experience finding experienced talent on oDesk/Elance?
