How to Hire Happily (Handily and Heuristically)

Joe Baz’s interview on How to Hire a Great Art Director is live at The Content Marketer! The article focuses on ATF’s experience in hiring UX designers and Art Directors, as well as the experiences and advice of Peter Brown, from Brown Creative. You’ll have to read the whole article to learn all of Joe’s secrets, but here are just a few he mentions:

  • “Our art directors are responsible for a team of designers, but they also do some hands-on work, so we look for people with both skill sets…”
  • “[We look for] A creative eye. We can train someone to code, but it’s almost impossible to teach people to recognize good work.”
  • “We assess our candidates based on five categories.” (To learn what they are, you’ll have to read the article!)
