    I didn't have a good experience with these people. I didn't feel that their testing process reflected my skills well at all, and they completely ignored my other work experience. We look for people that are good problem solvers, have well rounded backgrounds and those that are eager to learn.

    So, yes. Expect tests.

      Interesting, as what kind of designer did you apply and what test did you feel did not reflect the skills needed to do a good job? I had a great experience, was very nervous about the tests at first but as long as you have enough expertise its definitely worth it as it makes getting new clients a lot easier.

        So did you get through Christoph? Curious to know how good it's been as a way to get in freelance project

          Yep I got trough. and since then it has been nothing but a blast. Sure it takes some time to get trough the application process, but its worth it with the time you save getting new clients. I have had short term and long term projects since then and as the clients are also selected and briefed on what to expect you rarely have a bad experience ( I never had one)
