The Brand Studio is a passionate team of creative thinkers tasked with shaping the future of Google brands by deepening the love of our users. As part of this team, you work with many kinds of creative thinkers all tasked with ensuring creative excellence across the Google Marketing landscape.

By embracing user insights, strategic thinking, and beautiful design paired with provocative execution, you strive to create delightfully intuitive (and delightfully inventive!) experiences that will define the future of our brand.

Designers are integral to the creative process and play pivotal roles in the strategy, conception and design. Designers have experience connecting customers and brands through storytelling, intuitive interfaces and transformative brand experiences.
