Is it ethical to ask a potential hire to redesign an existing website for the company?
For context, I've been sent a static image of a dashboard for a major bank. I've been given no information about the dashboard or its purpose, so it seems like they simply want a visual redesign, which is also concerning since this is supposed to be a UX design job, not a visual design job. However, if all they want is, in fact, a redesign of the visuals, what's to stop them from taking my work and using it without paying me? This also seems like a waste of time if I don't end up getting hired, especially since I already have a portfolio that they can look at for samples of my work.
