Senior UX Designer

Hiring decisions have never been easy, especially when hiring senior roles on the verge of creativity and technical knowledge. You have to stay smart and never lose focus of your development goals when looking for the right talents for your project.

This article showcases the best ways to hire a senior UI/UX designer to let your next project meet the users’ expectations and market needs as accurately as possible.

Why a Senior

According to the best software development practices, mixing team members with different experience levels is the right approach since it opens up better collaboration and experience exchange opportunities. Having a senior UI/UX designer on board along with middle and junior specialists, depending on your project requirements, is also the right tactic. Here’s why.

  • A senior UI/UX designer has a lot of hands-on expertise. Expect a winning mix of technical knowledge and skills enhanced by creative and critical thinking, plus the previous use cases from which the Senior designer can suggest the winning ideas.
  • They come with a bag of proven solutions. Where a less experienced designer would need to go through a long path of trial and error to find the perfect solution to your problem, a pro will most probably have it already solved in one of their live projects.
  • They have the skill to see a holistic picture and its flaws. The practical experience of a design pro enhanced by critical and creative thinking allows them to evaluate the prototype as a whole and instantly find potential stumbling blocks. That is, you can expect a well-developed prototype on the first try and avoid costly mistakes at an MDP (Minimum Delightful Product:)) development stage.
  • They save you money. While costing more from the hourly-rate perspective, an experienced designer in your team might actually help you save your budget in the long run. They would instantly detect and prevent mistakes that are often made at the early stages of a project’s development. That includes unscalable app architectures, incomplete user flows, unnecessarily custom UI solutions, and more. Designers who have never dealt with such things would probably overlook them, which would cause a lot of headaches and bloat the development budget sky-high as your project grows.

If you think good design costs a fortune, then we hope you’ll never get to know how much bad design does.
