About the test

The Graphic Design test assesses the ability to convey information through visual communications with a series of multiple-choice questions drawn from real-world scenarios.

The assessment includes work-sample tasks, such as:

  • Applying design software skills to edit images, prepare files for printing, and select suitable image file formats.
  • Evaluating designs to determine the correct fonts, typefaces, and color models to use.
  • Analyzing design projects to identify and clarify the work that needs to be done.

Graphic designers, web designers, and art directors need a solid understanding of design principles, tools, and procedures to create effective visual designs that meet users' needs, convey intended messages, and satisfy client briefs.

Decorative quote

Simple, straight-forward technical testing

TestDome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.
