Who's behind Design Academy?

Hi, I'm Laura Elizabeth, a UI/UX designer based in the UK. I work with developers to make their websites look as good as the code behind them. I started Design Academy as a free resource for developers or anyone who wants to learn the (not so) mysterious art of design.
