The search giant is trying to recruit designers with a more visual style.
In a new report, Google said it will begin training new designers in a new, highly focused way this summer.
The training will be held over three weeks, starting with a design course that will focus on color and design principles and expand to include an interactive design and visual storytelling course in September.
The goal is to increase designers’ skills in the areas of visual design and storytelling, Google wrote in the report.
“With the advent of the Internet of Things, we’ve seen the proliferation of new consumer-facing products and services, like wearables and smart home systems,” the company said in a press release.
“Many designers and creatives are looking to learn how to design a product or service for a wide range of use cases, and it’s great to have new ideas to add to this growing ecosystem.
As designers, we can play an important role in shaping the future of wearables, smart home and consumer technology.”
Google said it has hired more than 20,000 designers and other creative professionals over the past five years.
“The most successful designers in the industry are also the most creative and creative minds,” the firm said.
Our team will be led by a creative leader, and they will provide an exceptional learning environment for designers to get their hands dirty with a wide variety of different design challenges. “
To continue to grow, we need to bring our talented designers into the fold.
