Pebble and Essential designer Liron Damir joins Google to work on Home products

Chaim Gartenberg for The Verge:  Liron Damir, Pebble’s former VP of design and one of the leaders behind creating webOS for HP and LG, is heading to Google to serve as the new head of UX for Google Home, viaVariety. Per Damir’s announcement on LinkedIn, he’ll be “lead[ing] the design of Google Home products,” in his new role at the company.
Damir leaves his position at Andy Rubin’s Essential, where he had served as head of UX for the startup’s upcoming phone (and presumably, Essential’s Ambient OS project). Between his previous experience developing webOS for TVs, his time at Pebble, and his work at Essential, Damir’s hire makes sense for Google, especially as the company begins to build out more visual user experience interactions with Home.  Full Article:
