How to build a successful digital design team?

With so many different design job titles and skill sets, we understand that recruitment can often be difficult to navigate.

One of our biggest recommendations for hiring managers, is to consider which specialists you need. Many job descriptions ask for both UX and UI experience, but it's very rare to find someone who’s equally strong at the user testing and research as they are the visual design. 

It's a tough balance to strike, but there’s usually a compromise somewhere. Consider what other skills exist in the team and what is the missing link? If you're unsure, working with a recruiter can help be a sounding board for your thinking and team planning.
