Google is looking for a new Doodler, the designer who creates those versions of its logo tailored to birthdays of the famous, holidays, and milestones of all sorts.
Ever since intern Dennis Hwang created the first official Google Doodle twelve years ago, they’ve become cultural touchpoints. Anyone who creates a Google Doodle can rightly claim to be one of the world’s most viewed artists. And that artist could be you.
Here’s how Google describes the work:
As a Product Graphic Designer/Illustrator, more commonly known as a “Doodler,” you have the world’s best platform to showcase your stylistic skills–as well as your sense of humor, love of all things historical and imaginative artistry. From Jules Verne to Pac-Man, you have the reins to our brand and iconic logo and can run free with your innovative ideas.
What skills do you need?
- A Bachelor’s of Fine Arts. In lieu of a degree, four years of relevant experience.
- Freehand illustration skills and a wide range of artistic styles.
- Ability to translate conceptual direction into amazing works of art.
- Ability to work collaboratively.
- Comfort with digital and traditional media.
- Knowledge of animation fundamentals.
- Online portfolio/reel.
How could anyone with artistic flair — at least anyone who lives in the Bay Area — resist?
