What to ask Graphic Design talent
To dig deeper into their experience, and find out if this Graphic Designer is the perfect candidate for your company, our Creative Recruiter recommends asking: “What specific projects have you done in the past and was it consumer facing or internal?”By asking this question you’ll gain an in-depth look at their experience, and a deeper understanding of their design aesthetic and who they have in mind when they design.
