How to evaluate a designer with a design exercise
Braden Kowitz

How would you feel about a designer challenging some of the requirements of the exercise? In a real world situation, if someone came up to me and told me I had to make something with four buttons, I wouldn’t just make something with four buttons. It’s my job to decide how many buttons (if any), and if I thought six were needed that’s the recommendation I would give. But in a “design exercise” like this, if my final solution had six buttons, would you just think I didn’t follow the instructions?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
