  • How to Hire a Great Freelance Designer?

  • User interface (UI) design refers to the aesthetic elements through which people interact with a product, such as buttons, icons, menu bars, typography, colors, and more. User experience (UX) design refers to the experience a user has when interacting with a product. UI/UX designers deal with this area of creating software.

    If you’re looking to hire a freelance designer for your company, this guide is going to help you find the perfect fit. We’ve included everything you need to know about hiring a freelance Designer.

    We have broken the sections into the following parts:
    1. Let's introduce Web Design to you.
    2. Why is Web Design widespread?
    3. What are the tools used by Web Designers?
    4. Writing the job description to hire a Designer
    5. Interview Questions for hiring a Designer
    - Basic Questions
    - Advanced Questions
    - Data Structures/Algo Questions

    1. Let's introduce Web Design to you

    • Origin story: Donald Norman at Apple gave UX design the name in 1995.

    • Widely popular: In 2020, LinkedIn listed UI/UX as one of the top skills with at least 21% yearly growth. In 2021, there were more than a million UI/UX designers in the world.

    • 2. Why is Web Design widespread?

      • UI/UX Designing is vital for increasing sales and the growth of the business. It helps in improving customer satisfaction which helps in increasing the number of users for the specific application.
      • Nowadays customers have a lot of choices and alternatives for the products and the services, businesses have a short span of time to grab their attention and they can achieve it using UI/UX design

      3. What are the tools used by Web Designers?

      These are some of the commonly used design tools:

      1. Figma

      Figma is a web-based vector graphics editor and prototyping tool. Mobile apps are also available on Android and iOS. Designers can create and share their work on Figma, and collaborate with others, with ease.

      2. InVision Studio

      InVision Studio is a prototyping and animation tool. It is used to create vector-based screen designs with ease and at a quick pace. The app has highly intuitive features and it serves as a complete design solution.

      3. PhotoShop

      One of the most popular web design tools out there, PhotoShop is great for creative web designers. It provides a vast choice of features, color options, gradients, etc. that allow designers to explore and play with their designs.

      4. Balsamiq

      Balsamiq serves as a wireframing software - designers use it to generate sketches of their design ideas for a website so that the team can have a clear idea before the code for the components is written.

      5. Google Fonts

      Choosing the right font to capture the attention of the users is an important aspect of web design. Google Fonts is used for this purpose. Google provides a very large collection of fonts on the website and designers can pick out which to use and apply them in the website's styling.

      4. Writing the job description to hire a Designer

      Below are some key points that we at Flexiple have learned through trial and error - a process of filtering through over 15,000 developers.

      • Years of software development experience: Be specific about the technology you’re looking for and the number of years of experience needed. A proxy to years of experience can be the number of production-level apps worked on.

      • Type of products built in the past: Based on the type of product you are trying to build - social network, SAAS product, etc. - you can prioritize certain developers over others.

      • Exposure to specific industries: Developers who have built products in certain industries will already know key aspects of laying the foundation for a great product and will be able to predict possible problems.

      • Experience working remotely: A developer with past remote work experience is an added advantage as they would have first-hand experience of everything - right from how contracts work to streamlined communication, as well as timelines and deliverables.

      • Strong communication: An essential thing to look at when hiring a freelancer is excellent communication skills. Since all the interaction happens online, a freelancer should be able to effectively communicate to ensure a streamlined execution of all work.

      • 5. Interview Questions for hiring a Designer

        Now that you have made a quality JD, it can still be tricky to evaluate the skills of your applicants. To help you with that, we have created a pool of questions that a good Developer should be comfortable with.
        It is important to note that the ability to answer these questions doesn't imply that you have a top quality candidate. But it definitely is a big step in that direction.

        To help you navigate through these questions, we’ve categorized the interview questions in 3 parts:

        A. Basic concepts: Includes all basic concepts used across languages but we've focused on their significance in Development. This will give you an understanding of how strong their programming foundation is.

        B. Advanced concepts: Includes all concepts that someone with higher expertise should know.

        C. DS/Algorithm questions: To test the logical capability of the candidate.

        A. Basic concepts

        Coming soon!

        B. Advanced concepts

        Coming soon!

        C. Data Structure/ Algorithm

        Coming soon!
