Am I trying to hire the wrong designer?

almost 7 years ago from Tobin Harris, Director at Pocketworks

    If it's difficult to find someone with all of these skills and professional experience, I would look for someone that's an outstanding communicator and designer. I'd check their design work and discuss it deeply with the designer to better understand his/her thinking, communication skills and properly evaluate his/her overall design skills.

    The communication and design skills are the fundamentals and in a nascent team the right person should be able to take the lead from there. Also make sure the renumeration is congruent with current market values.

    Overall I think you'll find someone with the skills, but to find someone with the array of experience required might be more difficult.
