Dropbox Hires Google's Material Design Guru Nicholas Jitkoff
Google's former lead Material Designer Nicholas Jitkoff is heading to Dropbox as the Vice President of design. He is known for the material design's simple visual philosophy, which has been adopted to build thousands of Google Android apps.
Jitkoff will lead the Dropbox's design team in defining the company's vision across UX Writing, Design Research, Product Design and Brand Design. His style of leadership and multidisciplinary strengths will help the company to new design heights, as noted on Android Police.
Jitkoff was an essential designer at Google and he dealt with different vital design ventures for more than 10 years. He was a principal designer for Google since September 2006. A portion of the essential tasks embraced by him includes the design of Chrome. He also became the key part in building up Google's Material Design language.
Close Virtue For Designing: Why Him?
According to Tech Crunch, Jitkoff is taking Dropbox by working intimately with the company's Engineering and Product groups. He will lead the Design group in characterizing the company's vision for Dropbox. The company just recently hit $1 billion revenue. It was reported last week during the launch of its product, Smart Synd, that Dropbox will appoint someone to lead the design team.
Remarkably, as Dropbox refocuses its energies on business by releasing the cloud collaboration application called Paper, which was worked to compete Google Docs and Microsoft's Office, Jitkoff is being brought on as VP of the design team. It is the first time that the company has not recently enlisted another lead architect, but rather given the designer a seat at the official level.
