    Weird. I cared. It's a well written, thoughtful article on a designer's personal take on potential improvements.

    I'm guessing he modified the files.

    but isn't that exactly what the toolbar should be – a fully customizable drawer for your preferred tools?

    Depending on my schedule, I'd have worked on it every available hour from reception to 8am. If they fought against that logic, I'd have said something along the lines of "I treated this like I would treat any deadline – I'd want to take advantage of the time I have to produce the best work for the client as possible."

    This advice comes from my conversation and mock design challenge I produced for a designer at Moment.

    In hindsight, if they have a solution already in mind, it's a good way for talent acq to measure an applicants way of thinking to compare their solution to their internal solutions.

    For instance, Zendesk could run the same problem to all of their internal designers, and measure applicants' solutions against them.

    What is the time between assignment, and due date?

    No one in their right mind will spend only 4 hours on this assignment; if someone is looking for work, and wants this job, they will be wise to spend every available minute on the project.

    That alone fucks up the desired outcome – two very hirable applicants could produce highly different solutions based solely on how they interpret the problem: "Should/Shouldn't I spend only four hours on this problem?" This skews the data and causes talent acquisition more problems than it solves.

    I've heard more bad than good when it comes to design exercises, but thankfully among my dozens and dozens of interviews I've endured over the past several months, I was only asked to perform a design challenge once, and it wasn't a take-home challenge. We walked through my portfolio, then they gave me a short 30 min design challenge. I think this is a much more actionable method for talent acquisition.

    does it give you notifications about how many more minutes longer today is than yesterday?
