thank you for your answer. When you say that Audacity could move to HTML 5 UI... do you have any special framework or library in mind?
Are there any low hanging fruit tasks that designers could do to help the project move forward?
Thank you for your time.

WxWidgets has long had a reputation for making ugly UI's, though much less ugly these days than back in the days of Windows XP.
WxWidgets was chosen in the very early days of Audacity (pre version 0.8) as the GUI toolkit because it was the only mature cross-platform toolkit to provide the features required by Audacity and also a guarantee of a permissible open source license. There are now tens of thousands of lines of code in Audacity that use Wx features.
There is speculation that Audacity may eventually move to an HTML5 UI, though that is likely to be years away.
