Uncovering the collective wisdom of
design leaders about their hiring processes.

Hiring designers is hard. Really hard. In a world where nearly every company is actively recruiting and hiring designers, there isn’t a well-documented or established pattern for evaluating design candidates. Many design managers have years of experience refining their design chops, but very few have had the opportunity to refine their management skills. Recently, Lindsay Mindler of Remind asked, “How do I design my team?” and design leaders from all over the industry responded with wonderful advice on who to hire and how to find them.

The discussion was phenomenal, but it left us wondering,
“How do we hire these designers once we’ve found them?”
