    The word "seasoned" makes a difference here. Professionals in that category should already possess the requisite credentials: resume, portfolio, references. Combined with an interview, that ought to satisfy any prospective employer/client.

    Given all that, I'd only consider a paid test, at which point the client would be better off just assigning some actual work as a kind of trial/probationary period before fully committing.

    Partnerships with newer designers might benefit more from a trial system due to comparatively fewer credentials, but either way, perhaps it's worth considering whether as a seasoned professional with a portfolio, etc you would do free work to prove yourself, that might guide whether it's appropriate to expect others to do the same. Cheers.
