    Excellent resource! Having created a bunch of email designs I think this post really captures the artifacts that most people overlook. While reallygoodemails.com is a good site I think this definitely nails the idea down of picking out best practices on all things relating to the email aside from just the overall look and feel.

    Set clear expectations with the designer for your projects, discuss what success looks like, hold stand-ups, show your care... the list goes on. Define time, commitment and budget for the given project.

    There's a lot of onboarding that should happen (2-3 days) between you and the new designer prior to kicking off the project so you could really hit the ground running and know how to best deliver value. This often goes overlooked this because usually freelancers are brought in last minute. Onboarding can be simple things like sharing internal resources, google docs, and support for new software that the designer might not have a license or credentials for. Another example might be Invite freelancers to recurring meetings to ensure the designer cares and understands the vision the rest of the team has.

    I really believe the success comes to life once you remove all the potential blockers that can stand in the way of effective collaboration and communication. Then, it's on the designer to hustle and demonstrate their capabilities without the usual blockers/challenges while working remote.
