Well, yes, and... At the end of the day, what have you
determined by discussing a portfolio? Only that the
candidate can *speak* eloquently and deftly about the
portfolio. That's important, but I'm not hiring
speakers, I'm hiring designers. Thus, I need a
demonstration of design ability, not just speaking
ability. So, to my original point, I want another (or
an additional) tool.
