How do you evaluate legit UX/product designers?
Curious how you find and interview and hire designers capable of doing real interaction and product design. What do you look for in a portfolio, if you’re perusing many how do you decide which ones are worth looking at, how much time do you spend on them. I personally have strong visual design background (plenty of Dribbble-worthy shit) but almost exclusively do complex interaction work now. Often with the intention of reducing the amount of time users fuck around with a UI. Oracle design leadership is dismissive of that, they have hard-on’s for sexy stuff, so thought I’d get my portfolio together and follow up with a few recruiters who reached out recently. But want to work with teams concentrating on challenging problems not making shit look cool.
