What makes a good application? Having read a lot of applications myself I know that there’s no simple answer to that question.

To get the right person they asked their applicants to hand write a letter describing why they’d like to spend two years of their life at Mark Boulton Design. To keep it fun and find out what made the applicants tick, they were also asked to tell a story, write a haiku or draw a picture.
They got so overwhelmed by the amount of awesome applications from all over the globe that they decided to share their ‘Top 10′ on their blog (with their permission of course).
