There were 2 parts to the interview process - the video and the design challenge.
Application Video 🔗︎
For their Experience Design School every summer, HUGE asks applicants to submit a one minute video showing off why they want to attend in a creative way.
This is my application for the Huge Experience Design School 2017. FVCproductions 2017. No copyright intended. ... Hey HUGE. My name is Frances Virginia Coronel. Coincidentally, I was in fact born in Virginia. For the past 5 years, I've been focused on becoming a better software developer.
Design Challenge 🔗︎
I was tasked with re-designing the website for TSP….
Redesigned Logos 🔗︎
As part of a redesign assignment for the Huge Experience School program, I redesigned two logos for the TSP website - one horizontal and the other vertical.
Redesigned Website 🔗︎

Video Interview 🔗︎
After those two steps, the next step was a video interview with two employees from HUGE. This is the only part that didn’t go well apparently. Lol.
Lessons Learned 🔗︎
On March 23rd, HUGE rejected me but let me know I was a super strong candidate and yadda yadda.
I think HUGE required a lot of time and effort from their applicants. Also, I felt that because I asked a somewhat controversial question during the interview (is it true that HUGE employees can be very cliquish?), I was flagged as not compatible for their culture.
