What's your thought on design tasks for a job application?

    I give people a small design and a small coding task in our hiring process.

    The design part is something that can be completed in +-4 hours, the coding part +-1-2 hours. The candidate can choose how much time to spend on the task.

    Portfolios can lie. Design is almost group work by definition. So the candidate might put lots of agency work in their portfolios when it was actually done by other people.

    With the skill test, it's hard to fake it. I ask the candidates to give themselves a deadline, and to talk about how they got to the end result.

    The test has nothing to do with our production work and is meant for hiring purposes only.
