Who/What convinced you to try Rtist to hire creative talents?
Rtist was first talked about when our team was looking for a Freelance Graphic Designer to help out with designing a POP Display. During our search, we were looking for a designer based in Malaysia, for a smoother communication and we were looking for a design that fit the local culture.
Before using Rtist, we looked for designers through Facebook groups, however, the response wasn’t so good. We were then recommended by one of our colleagues about Rtist, which is specifically catered to designers.
Their job posting is free of charge, we paid the hired talent directly through Rtist platform and we loved the flow of the website, where talents can directly apply for the job with their portfolio. It really saves time for us to go through the portfolios all the way to hiring the talent. We’ve managed to hire within 2 days.
Additionally, we were directly followed-up by Rtist’s representative when we had a few missing informations about our job description, they were really helpful in making our job post more attractive to the creative talents, hence, we got 10 applicants within the first 3 hours.
What’s your feedback about the creative talents?
For our previous job, we received a total of 15 applicants in two days, after that, we went through their portfolios and felt that Rtist really has some good talents in their platform. Though we loved many of the portfolios, we were only able to hire one talent for the job.
The talent we worked with specializes in print & packaging design, they worked with us very well and were very helpful in making sure the project is fully completed.
How have you benefited in using Rtist Platform?
We really loved the project management features on Rtist Platform. In short, we could pay for the creative talent’s services right on the platform and track the project directly. We had a 1 week deadline for the project and the talent we hired, delivered beautifully and on time!
Additionally, as a platform made for creative hiring, Rtist has streamlined our search for a freelance graphic designer and quickened the process to hire through their sheer amount of creative talents on their platform.
We would definitely use Rtist again to hire creative talents, its smooth hiring flow allowed us to streamline the hiring into a more organized and faster method. Designers are key to the visual side of our business and a crucial element to grow.
Our advice to fellow businesses out there, look for localized creative talents for design jobs as they’re much smoother to work with in terms of culture, language & design style. Rtist platform is fit for hiring local freelance talents and we’re even considering hiring a full-time designer in the near future.
