    Looking for a qualified freelance designer with experience in the sign manufacturing industry. All candidates should have experience working as a sign designer capable of producing both conceptual renderings for presentation as well as detailed scale drawing for pricing and manufacturing. Logo creation a must as well as wrap design. Would prefer someone who as also worked with installation and production of vehicle graphics. Candidates should be familiar with Signlab (not imperative), Adobe illustrator and Photoshop. Potential candidate must have a positive attitude and be a team player with the ability to work well under the pressure of meeting client deadlines.

    Might I ask, what or why you want a freelance person to be a team player and have all those other qualifications ??

    Sounds more like you want an employee or part-timer.

    IMHO the best way to find the right person is to have them apply their talent to a case study that is real or you create to test them. Portfolios are subjective and you don't know if the client had an endless budget and brought in volumes of detailed information or if they had a $30 budget and said 'run with it'. Also, google has made a lot of terrible graphic artists seem like they are the Michelangelo of the digital world when in reality they just downloaded a pirated copy of Photoshop 4.0 and they use Papyrus on everything they do.

    Thank you for the advice. We have successfully hired freelancers and had very good luck in the past so I can trust my vetting process once they apply.

    Freelancers are usually not team players. That's why they're freelance. They work for themselves.

    We have had very good luck with the freelancers that we have hired and I will expect that we will have that same experience once we hire our next designer.
