Join Bonnie Siegler for an in-depth discussion in this video Interviews with designers, part of Working with Creatives.
- I cannot stress enough the importance of meeting…with the creative or creatives in person…before you begin working together.…Or even before you decide to work together.…You just can't get as much information from a phone call,…or even a Skype call.…You want to get to know these people as people,…not just as designers.…I read about a company that takes perspective hires…out to lunch and tells the restaurant's kitchen…to intentionally bring the wrong lunch…to the prospective hire.…
Then they see how he or she handles the situation,…and it gives them some insight into how they treat people…and how they deal with something going wrong,…even if it's a minor thing.…I am not suggesting you do that.…It seems a bit extreme.…But just get together in person.…Read each others body language.…Is conversation easy or difficult?…Do you speak the same language?…Not literally, but figuratively.…And since you may not have the need to meet in person again,…because of all this newfangled technology,…this face-to-face meeting can set the tone…
