Hi Kristijan,

I agree with you, but the thing is that they are going to receive as many free ideas/designs as candidates. It seems more than they need to renew all their site's design and they can use the landing page style for the rest of their site.

 

It occurred to me that it may be possible to copyright your 'new website' ideas, if you are really interested/or worried. lol

 

True that, but I highly doubt a company will go trough a whole hiring process just to get free design ideas. I mean if they schedule 10 interviews where you probably get 2 people interviewing (so spending time and in return spending money) why not just hire a top freelance designer to give them some pointers for their landing page? 🤔

Then again it's possible such company exists, it just seems highly unlikely to me.

The point is not to redesign 'My company website'. It seems to me that landing pages are designed by groups of people, marketing even the Pres. maybe.

  1. How could one new person design something better than a group?
  2. All projects have trade offs. What would you gain or lose if 'your new idea' that you spent 2 days on bring to the 'table'.
  3. If you are artistic, do your ideas fit with the group. Group questions are very big now-a-days...
  4. hundreds of legit reasons...

I don't think that all companies have groups of people to work on their websites, in the small ones (so most of them) probably the web developer and marketing person are the same ones.

Yes, Alberto, I agree. I did not know the size of the imaginary company. haha. ;)
