Microsoft has done something that might just boost its design popularity — hiring a designer. It’s not any old designer, oh no sir, it’s Andrew Kim. He’s the guy that made a long list of concepts of what Microsoft should be with its brand image in order to remain a vision of the future, rather than the present. His designs were nothing short of awesome, so it turns out Microsoft has hired him. As he goes on to say:
But when it came time to make my final decision, I wanted to work at a place I can really get excited about. Working at a company is like getting married, it becomes a fundamental part of your life. I want to work with awesome people on awesome projects that I can get excited about. If you’ve been watching Microsoft over the past year, it’s been exciting, regardless of what your ecosystem preference is.
Now, don’t get too worked up: he’s only been hired to the Xbox division, which he didn’t even create concepts for. But it does mean that Xbox might be one of Microsoft’s first brands to get access to this guy’s awesome designs. Go awesome!
