Krop circles

January 31, 2008 @ 8:31am

Since we have about four times as many freelance developers as we do designers and we need a whole lot of both, I decided to give Krop a try. A few different people had recommended them and I had seen them on a couple of sites, so I posted our designer job description.

Three of my first four applicants looked decent on paper. Overall the nearly forty results I got were good. I'd say the 37signals applicants were better overall, mainly because 37signals candidates had more pure web experience. Krop applicants usually have print and video backgrounds and ad agency experience.

Now we just need to load them all up with trial design projects. We have plenty to do, so that won't be difficult. It's easier to hand off a self-contained design project than it is to hand off development work.
