Visual Designer

As a Visual Designer, you’ll delight users with design that inspires, engages, and excites them.

You’ll rely on user-centered design principles to produce high-quality visuals — from concept to execution — across many platforms. Like all of our UX jobs, you’ll collaborate with your fellow designers to constantly refine the Google design language and create innovative, great-looking products that people love to use.

Paul Schlacter, Visual Designer

Q: What did you do before joining Google?
A: I started out as a motion designer at Trollbäck + Company, where I made a lot of commercials, logo animations, and network-branding packages. I left Trollback to freelance, which led me to the Creative Lab, where I worked as a contractor. After bouncing around a little bit between Creative Lab, Tribeca Film, UXA, and Yahoo, I finally came back to Google full time in August 2014.

Q: What is the most interesting project you’ve worked on at Google?
A: FORM, Google's first design conference. I got to work on everything from the brand and supergraphics to the badges and bathroom signs.

Q: What excites you most about working at Google?
A: It's exciting, and a little terrifying how many people see what we work on here.

Q: What advice would you have for designers?
A: No matter what kind of job you want, find the people who do the work you like and try to work with them.

Q: What does it mean to be Googley?
A: Being Googley means that you approach problems with the attitude that they can be solved. You're kind, creative, and collaborative. It also means you love snacks.

A few years ago, I wouldn't have guessed that Google would be innovating in the design space. Now, I think this is one of the most interesting places for a designer to work.
