Am I trying to hire the wrong designer?

    I'ma go and say something wild.

    My approach to design varies vastly depending on who I'm helping and what my resources are. What you're asking for there can be done at so many different levels, with such variation in budgets and other resources...

    Unless you have a process in place for the rest of the organisation, I'd get someone in there that will use his/her own approach.

    Like I mentioned, I don't have personally have a standard approach. I do what I can with the resources I'm given. Sometimes that means I'm designing and copy-writing straight into the series of WordPress sites we're about to launch, and other times that means I'm mood boards off of what I see the competition doing, so that we may capture the feel of the brand before we even touch functionality.

    Sometimes I'm new to the processes I use, sometimes I've done 'm 100x before. Regardless, it's best to do what's right, over "what you know".

    TLDR: See if the process really matters for your hire, or if you just want someone that can get the results you want.
